BackupBuddy version 2.1 brings the highly requested Dropbox.com support to the table (in addition to the existing Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, and Email destinations). This integration allows you to schedule backups to be automatically transferred to your Dropbox, manually send backups to Dropbox, and even view, download, or delete backups that are stored on your Dropbox.com account. You can even share your backup with someone else using Dropbox file sharing.
This new feature makes BackupBuddy an even more powerful backup, restore and migration tool. We’re excited that Dropbox has made it possible for PluginBuddy to create this integration.
One of the easiest way to secure yourself against data loss while using BackupBuddy is to transfer your site backups to a third party location. A backup that is stored in the same location as your site cannot protect you from a server or harddrive failure — you need to have a copy of the backup in another location. Dropbox.com is an easy way to expand your protection – 2GB of storage is even free so you can get started protecting your backups and not even have to pay for storage if your backups aren’t too large.
BackupBuddy also supports Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, and Email for remote backup destinations and remote viewing of existing backups.
