Confusion on space used

Many of our BETA users have been experiencing some strangeness in the Space Used. Hopefully this will explain and I'm hoping we didn't cause anyone too much frustration.

You probably will see a large jump in space used because BlogBackupOnline has started counting the linked files (images you linked to from your blog) in the space usage calculation which it hadn't before. We have been backing up these files for you all along, however most users simply want to backup the text of their blog. If you delete the backups of the linked content, your disk space storage will return to the original value. If you wish to keep backing up the linked files, we recommend upgrading your account.

If you send an email to we will remove the files for you.

As well, we are adding a button in BlogBackupOnline to do this manually. From the Dashboard, select the blog by clicking Manage next to the name. On the Blog Status screen is a button "Delete Linked Files". Just click this and give it a minute or so to delete the files.

Send me an email ( if you have an problems or if there is still confusion.

BlogBackupOnline V1.5 goes live

Yes, after much blood, sweat, and tears, the new version is live. Thanks to everyone involved.

A few notes on the new release:

Biggest new features:
1) Full backup and restore for tags and categories (note tags are backed up as categories right now due to the fact WordPress publishes tags as categories in the feeds).

2) Recurring restores for blogger. Bloggger only allows 50 posts to be restored per day, so we've updated Blogger restore to perform 50 posts per day until it is done. As well, we've gotten a contact at Google that says you can request that restriction be lifted for a blog on a case by case basis. Check out the Help file to get more details on this.

3) Added some simple AJAX and reworked some of the layout of the GUI to make the experience simpler.

Recommendation - you should run a full backup again to get the tags and categories for your blog.

Another warning - if you've registered a blog in the past and you've set your feed to be summary only, you need to change this. We have noted some people during the BETA period backing up summaries - BlogBackupOnline won't let you make that mistake anymore, you can't register a blog that has only summaries enabled. But if you've already registered your blog, check to make sure you don't have summaries only configured in your blog.

Also, just to clarify again for FREEMIUM users - your account won't back up linked content anymore (like photos and images linked from your blog). FREEMIUM accounts will only backup the content in the blog itself, so if you need that linked content, please consider upgrading to a Enterprise or Professional account.

Thanks to everyone again!

BlogBackupOnline moving out of beta

After nearly a year in BETA, BlogBackupOnline is moving out of BETA! After great feedback from our awesome users, we are preparing to release version 1.5 next week.

Great news - BlogBackupOnline will continue to provide a FREEMIUM version for our users. Our goal is to continue to provide a free and valuable resource for every blogger to backup their content.

We also found that many of our customers are eager for more new features and full technical support for BlogBackupOnline. In order to provide this level of service and to continue to provide new innovation with BlogBackupOnline, we will also be offering new "Professional" and "Enterprise" accounts.

Our absolutely free FREEMIUM service will include:

Initially 5 MB of storage (we measured this to be adequate for most blogs). As well, if you blog about BlogBackupOnline, send us the link (to and we will double this storage space.

Our Professional account will include:

50 MB of storage
Support for backing up content linked from your blog
Support for restoring your blog
Email support
$4.17 per month ($49.95 per year)

Our Enterprise account will include:

1 GB of storage
Support for backing up content linked from your blog
Support for restoring your blog
Phone support
$8.30 per month ($99.95 per year)

Subscribers using less than 5 MB of storage space will be upgraded to the newest version automatically. Those users with more than 5MB of storage space will have an extended period of time (6 weeks) to continue to use the service to help them decide if they would like to upgrade to a Professional or Enterprise account.

After 6 weeks, we will continue to store your backups for one year, however new backups will not run. Techrigy will provide you with a guideline for exporting everything in your account and will continue to provide access to the backed up content.

As always, we’ll love to hear your feedback.
