    So yeah, I recently bought BackupBuddy (the cheapest license). Because I'm a customer, they are offering me their BackupBuddy Gold for only $174 (It regularly sells for $350, and currently for $297).

    The license allows you to install it on unlimited sites AND you have unlimited lifetime updates! So if 2 or 3 of you want to share the cost, we could be getting the Gold version for less than their regular licenses (which they have to renew every year by the way! The Gold version is a one-time payment thing.).

    If anyone's interested, please PM me :)

    Oh, and for those who don't know what BackupBuddy is:

    I don't mean to infringe any rule here. If I am, mods, please delete this thread (it's unintentional).

    What's wrong with free backup tools or the backup tools provided by the hosting plan?

    Call me paranoid, but if the backup is stored on their own servers and they crash, the backup is gone... Or worse, if the hosting company itself just disappears (Yeah, call me paranoid!). With BackupBuddy I can schedule and automatically upload my backups to Dropbox or Amazon Web Services, etc.

    As for what's wrong with the free tools? Nothing so far. They work great for now. But they're free. Support for paid and free software is different. Plus iThemes has been there since quiiiite a long time. They don't look like they're going away any time soon. At least not as soon as the newer ones!
