That's really the whole point - it's unreliable, and it's a critical function.  There's no error or any indication that the backup has failed.  An experienced user will notice that the backup file is way too small, but not everyone is an experienced user.  If it's a major problem to fix it, shouldn't be too difficult to issue a patch that removes it altogether.

青山 素子:
I do have to admit that having something that doesn't work reliably is probably more dangerous than not offering it at all.

Still, people should be testing their backups instead of just relying on hope.

I thought so, for two reasons.

1) As has been pointed out, this is a pretty major, critical flaw, when you think about it.

2) It's been mentioned at least four zillion times and squat's been done about it.

Ummm... You're part of the Team, you discovered it, wrote about it and, I assume, reported it -- and it hasn't been fixed???!!

Oh bloody wonderful.

And just how are you supposed to test if a backup is working? If it's faulty, you'll probably lose (part of) your site in the process.

I'm working on a very basic mod at the moment for backups, its nearly done.
