If you worry about your hosting co, or just want to backup your blog, here is a good method to backup your site regularly to dropbox.
This method can help you save your hosting account disk space, by creating a backup of your site on a DropBox account instead.
WHAT IS DROPBOX?
Ok so here is a quick guide on how to setup your blog to backup itself to dropbox.
Step 1: Sign up dropbox
Step 2: Install the “WordPress Backup to Dropbox” Plugin
Go to the Dropbox Backup Plugin settings Area:
Step 3: Authorize the plugin to your Dropbox account.
Go through all the settings, and set the backup folder name, The date/time it should backup, and the Frequency.
Then you can select all the files you want to be backed-up, which should be everything, so you can just click “toggle all” at the bottom.
Then press save, and you are all set.
Congratulations, your blog and all its files will now be backed-up on the time/date and frequency you selected in the DropBox settings.
