We have covered plenty of backup plugins here in the past. Cloud storage costs are not that high these days, so you can store your backups in the cloud without having to go broke. The challenge is to automate the process in a reliable fashion. Doing your backups manually is not smart anyway. Here are 7 Dropbox backup WordPress plugins you can use to automatically send your files to the cloud:
UpdraftPlus Backup: lets you backup your files to Amazon S3, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Rackspace. Files and databases can have separate schedules. Failed uploaded are retried. This plugin supports encryption.
WordPress Backup to Dropbox: the name is pretty self-explanatory. It sends your files, media, and database to Dropbox. It uses OAuth to link with your account.
ManageWP Worker: one of our favorite services. It is designed for those of you who want to manage multiple WordPress sites from the same user interface. You can schedule automatic backups of your websites (Amazon S3, Google Drive and Dropbox) from your dashboard.
BackupBuddy: a premium plugin by the folks at ithemes. It is compatible with some of the most popular cloud storage services. BackupBuddy Stash makes managing your off-site backups more convenient.
XCloner: a backup and restore plugin compatible with Joomla and WordPress. You can create custom and automatic backups and restore your LAMP website in case of a disaster.
