Dropbox is one of most popular file hosting services today. It provides a simple mechanism for users to backup important files and shares it with others. These files are accessible from anywhere, anytime. You don’t need to bother carrying a flash drive anymore. Now wouldn’t it be good to have a backup of your sites on Dropbox too? But do you really need to do that?
You already have a registered account with a WordPress backup service – BlogVault.
Downloading your backup and then uploading it to your Dropbox will take up too much of your time.
All WordPress backup services have a limit on the number of backup versions they maintain. BlogVault stores up to 365 versions of your backup in its repository. What if there is a ‘gold’ version of your site that you want to store as a permanent backup? It could be a complex plugin that you installed or a new theme that got deployed.
BlogVault includes the Upload to Dropbox feature using which you can directly upload any version of your backup to your Dropbox account. The complete backup is stored to the Apps folder of your account.
BlogVault doesn’t upload backups to your Dropbox account directly as this can quickly use up all the space. Instead, you have the option of choosing specific backups that you want to stash away in this account for later use.
