  • Really solid list of backup plugins here, thanks.
    A few I’ve seen before, but surprisingly a few I haven’t seen before that I’m going to have to check out (e.g. EZ Backup and WPOnline backup).
    I’m still partial to using premium plugins like Backup Buddy for this type of thing though, although there are now some really good free plugins on the market.
