snapshot backups not showing up in my dropbox

Hi there,

I've set up a back up using snapshot in my WordPress. I've set it on a schedule but have also manually run it too. When I login to dropbox, go to apps then "WPMU Dev Snapshot" there are no files there. What am I doing wrong?

    @twinsmagic, How large is the archive? There is a 150M limit imposed by Dropbox for apps like Snapshot. We are trying to work around this but as of today the 150Mb limit will prevent the file from being sent to Dropbox.

    We are also working on syncing logic. So instead of sending a large single archive once daily or whenever you will be able to sync your media, themes, plugins folders. Dropbox automatically provides versioning.

    IF you archive is larger than 150Mb there are a few things you can try.

    1. Split up your archives. Setup one snapshot for the database tables. Another for Media. Depending on your site you can probably combine themes and plugins.

Thank NAME, for their help.
