For Blog back ups, we recommend, BackWPup.
There is a free version and a Pro version, the free version is great. This backs up everything–posts, theme, plugins and you can push it to Dropbox or another 3rd Party storage or have it emailed to you.
Have you used a back up plugin that you LOVE. Tell us.
What is your favorite plugin?
