Best Cloning and Backup tool for WordPress Websites
Pros: It is easy to use and it deals with most of the situations. It helped me cut my time for migrating a website to a minimum and it also helped me keeping backups of the important websites I manage.
There are other plugins that I used in the past as Duplicator, but none of them successfully achieved the user experience Duplicator is achieving, nor the technology Duplicator is offering in it's PRO version.
Cons: Sometimes, especially on big database and low resources servers, you need to get creative and fiddle long enough with the settings to make sure you take the website as it is. But still, Duplicator has lots of settings and in the end I always managed to get the data I needed.
Overall: For a professional, Duplicator is a time saver and a life saver.
I always like to have a backup of the original website before starting doing my job and Duplicator helps me:
1. Copying the exact environment on my local setup
2. Keeping the original files safe
3. Cutting the time for the points above
