With the release of Local 6.0, our Cloud Backups add-on is available in the Local Add-ons library! With the current version, you can connect Drive/Dropbox accounts to your Local account and make backups from the Tools tab as needed. We're working on the ability to clone from a backup and create new sites from a backup in future releases.
I'd love for anyone following to give it a try and let us know what we could do to improve!
John Wolf and anyone else following this feature request. I am the product designer on Local and I am starting in on a Backup project for Local. I'd love to chat with you about the topic and learn more about your needs. If anyone would be interested in talking please just grab some time on my calendar. I have availability from the 9th – 16th. Just need about 30 minutes of your time. Thanks!
Kevin Pryce: That linked feature request should be resolved now!
Especially because existing backup plugins do not work in Local. https://localwp.canny.io/feature-requests/p/compile-zlib-extension-into-the-default-php-binaries
