It didn’t work for me, couldn’t connect it to my pcloud account with the instructions given. Les instructions données sur le site ne m’ont pas permis de me connecter a mon compte pcloud! Dommage. J’espere que la nouvelle version, promise pour tres bientot, résoudra le probleme, car l’idée est prometteuse. Used webdav instead to connect to my pcloud account, so will never need this anyway.

I was migrated from USA datacenter location to EU datacenter location. After migration pCloud Backup plug-in doesn’t work and it wrote on folder selection error message “Revoked ‘access_token’ provided, you need to re-authorize the application.” I am not able to run backup. I created now one pCloud application. After change Client ID and Client secret I made new authorization. Application is linked on my pCloud account settions, but plug-in (pCloud Backup) still write error message in Choose Backup Folder section. 😥 Well, this plug-in works only if you have your account in USA datacenter location. It’s strange.

This is a much better implementation of previous pCloud backup plugins! Thank you! It has an easy to use and it has a secure implementation using pCloud. I’m impressed! You’ll surely get some adoption soon. This early version of the plug has some downsides: 1) Several of my backups just hang, and there is n logging or troubleshooting to assist. The directories are created in pCloud, but the backups never complete. (So I’m continuing to rely on Google Drive backups) 2) The Pro version is way, way, over-priced! I love to support developers, and I’m quick to pay, but at this price I’ll just not use use it and use other WP plugins into Google Drive. Other solutions that use Google Drive are still so much better and much cheaper like UpdraftPlus and Xcloner. With a little work, pCloud should just buy this plugin from you and give it to their customers. The pCloud blogs promote another plugin that simply does not work and is not secure. I’m very much a pCloud promoter, but pCloud falls short when it comes to WordPress backups with no solution that works and they owe it to their customers to stand behind their previous claims.
