I've never done this so bear with me regarding my concept; I want to create a demonstration Web site for potential clients - they can log into the dashboard, muck it up, see their changes on the front-end, and in one hour the Web site 'refreshes' itself and a fresh demo site is ready for the next person I tell, "Go to my demo Web site to see how easy Wordpress is."

So I need to know if Backupbuddy can be set to reinstall my demo every hour, or whatever interval I set so the changes the last person made are automagically erased.

Hi Vinny,

BackupBuddy doesn't have a "scheduled restore" feature so the plan can't be done automatically. If you have a backup of what the site gets "reset" to then you could restore back to the fresh unchanged demo site, but has to be done manually.
