    Hi Adam,

    I have a question.

    Your video on how to use Updraft Plus is clear ; thank you so much for that !

    I still have a question though.

    It's important to be sure whether or not a backup is “good”. How can you know it's good, that it's working ; isn't the proof of the pudding in the eating ?

    So, i thought, how can i really actively test a backup without compromising my still working website ?

    I don't want to restore the backup OVER my working website, so how can this be tested safely ?

    Great question and that's a tough one to answer. If you have the paid version of Updrafts you can restore it to a test install of WordPress to see that its good. This is because the paid version will allow you to change the URL in the database.

    You can try restoring a backup to the site that is backed up, but if there was a problem it could become a big problem.

    I can say with almost certainty that if Updrafts successfully completes a backup, then it is a good backup. It has saved me on more than 1 occasion.
