Nope redneck it surely doesn't.  I don't even know how the cloud thing works either so I'll just spend around an hour backing up my own stuff to my computer.

Maybe a tutorial on how to back up a database and then how to restore it would be good as well.

I'll try to write an article about how I do (actually how I have them done because I don't do anything anymore) my backups automatically soon.

The key is that I don't back up all images. Well, I don't back them up from my website is what I mean. What I do backup are the database tables and the plugins. My images are stored at a different hard drive and a different (paid) cloud service.

If you don't backup the images from your website, how would you be able to do a proper restore if stuff hit the fan and your website was unrecoverable?  When you upload and process images, they get renamed by Symbiostock.  In addition, thumbnails and watermarked images are created.

If you don't have everything, then you would basically have to upload your images all over again from scratch.  Wouldn't you?

You're right, the original images get renamed, too. I hadn't even realized that until today. I guess I need to rework my backup strategy and do a few test runs for the entire site including full size images. I'll let you know how it goes.
