    Under the Backup date box it says (Not finished – dropbox icon).

    1. Your welcome. It’s so important to backup your WordPress website just in case anything happens.

  5. Dear Adam!

    Congratulations for your great work! I really like your video tutorials, they are very useful and clear helping me a lot.

    Concerning this helpful video about the backup process with the UpdraftPlus free plugin, I have an important question.
    I have done everything and each setting in the same way as you demonstrated in this video and the backup process goes well regularly and continuously with Dropbox. However, I have just realised and am surprised that beside the remote storage the backups (as separate .zip files as well) are also automatically saved on the server and thus take a lot of the storage space. Why is this process going on if I only set Dropbox as the off-site storage for the backups? Now I have received an email of disk usage warning from my host provider that my account already uses 81,42% (3,18 GB/3,91 GB) of its disk capacity.

    Could you please answer my question and give some advice how to solve this problem?

    Thank you very much, I am very grateful to you for your help in advance!

    Best regards,
