How to back up files and folders wordpress?
Hello there, I'm working through Zac Gordons how to build a wordpress theme and I'm currently at the How to migrate a local wordpress site to liver server. Where Zac tells you to use backupwordpress plugin to back up both files and databases. But the plugin only back's up databases and not files.
What are people using to back up files and folders?
Thanking you in advance.

I used to use WordPress Backup to Dropbox which is free and only requires you to have a free Dropbox account, it's pretty easy to setup and you can leave it be once it's setup, it does SQL and file based backups based on it's default schedule or a user defined one that you can set.
However I run my own dedicated server so I have daily and weekly backups that clone my entire database and site over to Amazon's S3 buckets which is great as it costs next to nothing to store GB/s of data at a time.
