What is this?
Have you ever lost your Minecraft world before?
Maybe your hard drive died. Maybe you used a server hosting service that terminated without warning. Maybe you just accidentally deleted it.
DriveBackupV2 is a plugin that aims to provide an extra layer of security to your data by backing it up remotely.
- Creates and/or uploads backups to Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, or a remote (S)FTP server
- Can create a backup out of any files or folders on your Minecraft server
- Can include files and MySQL databases from external servers (such as a BungeeCord one!)
- Deletes backups locally and remotely if they exceed a specified amount
- Can automatically run backups at an interval or on a schedule
- And much more!

All of the data this plugin uploads and downloads from your Google Drive and/or OneDrive stays on your Minecraft server, so we never have access to it. This plugin physically cannot access any data in your Google Drive and/or OneDrive that is not related to backing up your Minecraft world backups. But don't take our word for it, all of this plugin's source code is available here!
We play on 1.12.2 Magma last version and have last drivebackupv2 1.6.0

Hi, when I add a path ''mods'' the timer for backup is always going to the default one at 60 minutes. Why is it making that? I'm using mohistMC api.
Is there possibly a way to change the folders that are backed up? I am finding that the auto-backup is only saving my world folder, but my server has a "world-nether" and "world-end" that don't get backed up.
Edit: Otherwise, this plugin is magic and saves me from having to manually stop/save/reboot the server every time I want to backup.

I'm assuming that your name is a play on Genius, which is very much suited to you. I had dug into the config files and did that originally, but I think I must have mistyped somewhere. Fortunately I was able to just copy/paste that part into my config and it works perfectly now!
Great plugin ! May l forward it to mbbs.net?I will introduce the plugin in detail, let everyone come to your bukkit page to download.
Followed project, waiting for Dropbox <3
In reply to DDzikuseQQ:
so I just curious about how does this plugin function with multiverse core
does I need to enter other world to back up the world or auto-backup will backup both world
Love this plugin so much, but lately I'm having an issue with it. I've configured it to keep only one local backup on the server, but instead it just keeps on saving newer ones, none of them get deleted when it reaches the limit of 1 backup.
Backups on Google Drive work fine, it keeps 10 and deletes the oldest ones. It's just the local ones that get saved on the server in the 'backups' folder that don't work like they should.
I'm on the newest version (1.3.5) and using Paper 1.16.2 #186. Here's my config:

Hey, is there any chance that you can add support for WebDAV? I'd like to backup my world on an external host to a NAS that I host at home.

On my list! With school starting, unfortunately, I have had less time to work on the plugin. If you know how to program in Java, consider making a PR.
This plugin is very simple to setup and use. There is so much flexibility in how you want your backups done and where you want them stored. Not to mention, this is completely free! Using this plugin gives me the peace of mind that my Minecraft server will be safe no matter what happens.
As a suggestion, an in-game command to see when the next back-up is going to be would be awesome!
Thanks for all the hard work put into the super helpful plugin :D

Added in the latest release!
Is their a way to specify the destination on google drive? I would like for example to put backup in /Backup/Minecraft can this be done?
In reply to dantheman61:
You can do this by changing the "destination" in the config.yml. Read more about this here.
If you join our Discord, I can walk you through this in greater detail.
Hey, I really enjoy your plugin. It comes with many functionalities and features. I would like to see there be a possibility to change the prefix of the chat-messages and set a timezone for the backup timestamps in the name of the zip-archive. Thank you!
Would there support for MediaFire or Dropbox? All though the plugin is awesome!
