Description of Folder destination settings in WordPress Backup plugin.

Backup WD plugin is incorporated with various cloud hosting services, where it can send or sync the backup files it creates. Moreover, it lets you keep the files among your website files, in a separate folder, as well as on an external FTP server.

Each storage option will be precisely described within the next few sections of this guide.


Setup the local folder using Folder to store option. The backup files will be stored here. You can write any name for the folder, but make sure the path starts with uploads/ directory.

Also, we recommend keeping {hash_key} component, which is a unique identifier that is used to add hashes to backup folder and file names.

File deletion option sets the maximum number of files in the dedicated folder. When the limit is reached, the oldest backup file will be deleted automatically.
