Hi, I have a question about backup buddy. I am looking to purchase this plugin as my main backup strategy for disaster remediation. I saw that we are able to send backups offsite like to Dropbox or the Stash feature.

I'm wondering, if a site is hacked and the intruder has admin access, are they able to delete all your backups stored offsite right from the admin dashboard? I watched the Stashboard video and it looked like there was a delete button in the admin area, which kind of defeats the purpose of offsite backups (at least in this example).

Hi Shawn,

Yeah, Stash has an option to block file management but currently other destinations do not.

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages.
