Choose if you want to display or hide your domain name in the backup file name.
3. Remove out of date backups

To be notified after a backup is processed, enable this option.
You can then choose to be notified by email when a backup is completed or only when the backup fails.
5. Clean junk files
WPvivid Backup Plugin lets you do some housekeeping after backups and restorations.
Calculate Sizes shows you how much space on your servers the backups are occupying.
Choose the several options available then click the Empty button to free up space by deleting junk files from your server.

You can export your settings, saving a local copy to your server which you can easily import if you ever needed to configure WPvivid Backup Plugin on another website.
