Would you like to transfer your WordPress backup to Dropbox?

Dropbox is a cloud storage service enabling you to store and manage files. By utilizing a backup plugin such as Duplicator, you can easily transmit your backup files to Dropbox. This not only eases the load on your server but also safeguards your website from potential data loss.

This tutorial will guide you through the process of backing up your WordPress site and sending it to Dropbox!

Connect Dropbox Account

Navigate to Duplicator Pro » Storage. Here, you’ll see the local storage option. To add Dropbox, click on Add New:
