BackupBuddy – 1st Experience

Tonight I utilized BackupBuddy to migrate a WordPress installation from a live server to a local install using MAMP on my Mac.  It was my first attempt at a BackupBuddy migration and took about 5 minutes to complete.

The process was intuitive and easy.  Earlier in the evening, I attempted to do a manual move and was running into all sorts of issues moving my database and connecting the dots – moreso than usual.  So, the ease of this BackupBuddy move was much appreciated.

What has been your experience with BackupBuddy?
