What Does Backup Manager Protect Against

I recently took over administration of a relatively small community website hosted by InMotion and created/maintained with Wordpress. I see that one of my subscriptions is for Backup Manager. I understand it can be used to back all or some of my website files manually our automatically.

What does it protect against? InMotion losing the my primary website files. Me wanting to go back to an old copy of the entire website?

Seems to me a backup plugin would be more flexible for similar cost...

Thank you for contacting us regarding the Backup Manager. With Backup Manager you can choose what to backup (specific files/databases) and set a regular schedule for backup intervals, or perform a manual backup at any time. The backups are protected from server problems as they are stored on external servers, up to the size you are subscribed for (starting at 10GB). They can be easily restored right from the Account Management Panel known as AMP. But, yes there are many WordPress plugins, such as Total Upkeep that can perform similar tasks and backup to 3rd party storage options.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,
