Scheduled back-up to Dropbox

I am keen to use xcloner to back up a Joomla 3 site I have created for a client but am not confident that they will remember to do back-ups once the site is handed over. I would rather schedule back-ups and store them in my dropbox account so I can 'rescue' the site if they need me to!  However, I've no idea how to implement this. I've read it needs to be a 'Cron' job and and API for Dropbox?  Anyone who can help me out here would be appreciated. Currently just doing manual back-ups with 'Easy Joomla Backup'

Hi John, this might be helpful , please note, you need to use a custom cron config name for your cron to run.

If you need further help, feel free to submit a support ticket on our site.
