Out of memory in settings page #63

First off, this is a great plugin. And I really want it to work for my website. Alas, after a couple months of assuming that the backups were happening, I discovered that they had begun to silently fail. I suppose that's what I get for not paying for premium extensions.

I can't seem to get the backups to complete, and I can't get the settings page to completely load either. On the settings page, the Excluded Files and Directories checklist gets a PHP Fatal Error: Out of memory just after listing the wp-admin folder. The backups start just fine, but never report as having finished, and the dropbox folder shows nothing being updated (the backups worked a few months ago, so the original backup files did make it to dropbox).

Here's the Out of memory error (replaced the website location with XXX):
Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 57147392) (tried to allocate 4168 bytes) in XXX/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-backup-to-dropbox/Classes/class-file-list.php on line 113

Here's a screenshot:

I suspect that the issue may be caused when wpb2d runs into some large (~30mb) unzipped SQL backup files in a subfolder of the wp-content folder, created by another backup plugin. But because I can't exclude that backups folder, I don't know for sure. This theory would also work with the fact that backups used to work, but as the website grew in size the SQL files got larger.

Hi Michael,

That's great!

Would it be possible to get a version of 1.2? I'm happy to be a beta
tester and give feedback.
