We recommend scheduling your backups for times when the traffic on your site is light. The following are recommendations for Database Only and Complete (Full) Backups.

Database Only Backup: Weekly

We recommend performing a Database Only Backup to back up your database on a weekly basis, since your database changes much more often than your files and folders.

Complete (Full) Backup: Monthly

BackupBuddy recommends doing Complete (Full) Backup every 2-3 weeks, since your files only change when you add or upgrade plugins, themes or your WordPress version.
