Hey, I saw your post in GridPane’s group about Snapshooter and I am ready to give it a try. Do you have any recommended steps for the setup? I can see there is GridPane as a source but also is in alpha stage and I want something to use in production. I have to choose WordPress because Multiple WordPress is on alpha too. My question here is if I install the WordPress Backup How I now which site to target? Thanks in advance. @Simon (SnapShooter.io) Please consider to add as an External storage provider Dropbox.Awesome Discord User

We’re not using provider snapshots in this guide since I currently don’t utilize this feature for GridPane servers. Personally, I use a mix of Backblaze B3 and Wasabi due to the cost. I’ve personally been with Backblaze for 5+ years and have completed a successful recovery of my primary workstation using their “send a drive” service as the data was over 2TB in size. No issues, and all the data was fully recovered successfully. You can sign up for Backblaze here.
