Hi Ovidiu,


Here are some of my impressions collected after first use of XCloner:


- the size of the backup is quite large; the former used akeeba compresses my site's Backup to about 300mb while XCloner's is about 800mb which is whole lot of a difference

- in the restore form some testing options would be nice --> do the provided ftp and mysql credentials work or not


Best Regards

Regarding backup size, did you exclude the other backup archives?
