Hi, I am using the free BackWPup plugin which works great for my small sites, but I have a few large sites (5GB) because of self-hosted music and video files. The backups through BackWPup are failing because they are too large. Will Backup Buddy be able to handle these large backups and send to SugarSync or another cloud backup site? I'd rather not have to parse the backups into separate sections, but if I have to, will the one-click restore still work?

Hi Tony,

There isn't a limit to the size of the site that BackupBuddy can be used on.  I'd recommend reading this post, however, where Jeremy gives a lot more detail:  http://ithemes.com/forum/topic/30953-backing-up-a-very-large-wp-database-and-files/

SugarSync is not one of the included remote destinations.  You can choose from Dropbox, Amazon S3, an FTP location, your email or (coming soon) BackupBuddy Stash.  

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,

Elise
