I've read through everything, reviewed all the settings but I just cannot quite understand how I do a plain and simple full backup of ALL of my site files and the full database?
The three options for each of the two sections (Files and Tables) don't really seem to explain things properly. For Files, the second option down says "common files" which implies not everything. The third option "Include selected" offers me Themes, Plugins, Media, wp-config and .htaccess but does this mean absolutely everything will be backed up - it seems not?!
The reason I ask is I often have various extra files and sub folders in my site root folder and judging by the Snapshot descriptions given, I assume these won't be included and there's no place to ADD selections that I can see?
It's the same sort of problem for the database Tables section. Second option implies just "blog" related things will be backed up. I have no idea what that really means and what will be included (or not!). It says it will automatically include "new tables" but again I have no idea what that actually means. The third option down "Include selected" gives me the option to choose "Core" and "Other" - Do I just select all and everything will be backed up (including whatever "new tables" is - it's not at all clear?
What I don't understand is why there isn't a simple "Backup entire site & DB" button somewhere?
I understand what Time Machine on a Mac does, and I know what differential backups are and use them in various backup regimes on my Windows and cloud backups systems but I just cannot work out what Snapshot's methodology of doing all this is?
I've got the S3 uploads working but what to do to actually fully backup my sites and then (incremental?) work stages with Snapshot Pro is beyond me.
NB: Does Snapshot automatically ignore any large existing (failed) backups that seem to be in it's working folder? I have two lots currently in there that total over 200MB. Should I manually delete these and itemise Snapshot's working folder(s) on the global exclusions?
Many thanks in advance...
