    Dave, you are the best.

    Is it possible to have a seperate option for choosing which backup we want to send to Dropbox?

    I mean I am backing up both the code and database. And both are transferred via your sftp add-on to an external server.

    But to Dropbox I would like to send only the database. Because it is smaller, more important and Dropbox offers for every registration only 2gb free space. So with that limited space, it makes sense to only send the database.
    So without paying anything, we could always have an extra copy of the database daily on dropbox.

    Set the option to keep 0 code backups, and they won't be uploaded to Dropbox.

    Just a quick question - has this been checked on a Dropbox Pro account (i.e. £79 per year/1TB)? If so, I'm in :D

    Also, Is there an option to remove the initial backup after successful transfer (Kind of important to remove the original in my case, since i have little spare room on the box after a backup is created!)

    Cheers :)

    I'll send you a conversation about this, bit yes, there is an option to 'Remove local backup' once the file is uploaded to Dropbox

    @SneakyDave - any chance to expand this addon for another clouds (Google drive, Copy...)?

    Great addon. I prefer having my files stored off of my main server for obvious security purposes. Just out of curiosity.. does "Delete local file" mean once it's backed up to both the local server and Dropbox, it'll automatically delete the backup from the local server? I want to make sure before I make any changes.

    Yes, that option is included for those that might not have the space, or don't want to keep backups on their web site, and only on Dropbox.

    Does this addon tested on Forums with 2GB+ database?

    Someone said in the reviews that they used it with a large database and it transferred fast.

    @SneakyDave, not really a big issue but I've selected 1 of each backup in the options and this happens.

    @SneakyDave Is it possible to exclude xf_bb_code_parse_cache table content on the backup?
    As it is almost 1GB for me.
    Not really needed for backups.

    I can add that to the options. Are there other tables that don't necessary need to be backed up, such as a session table or something?

    I'll look into this. It might be the same bug found on the forumbackup itself.

    You're backing up once a day? Is that list of files from your dropbox account or from your server?

    Some others are xf_search, xf_search_index and xf_ip ?

    EDIT: I can clarify that the issue doesn't occur anymore. I just got my backups and everything backed up as normal.

    Can't buy it? Seems your host is having some problems with the website :)
