The backup profile set in the plugin settings in "System - Backup on update" is not respected.

For example, I selected backup with ID #2 in the plugin settings.

But still, backup with ID #1 is always used.

thank you for the report. There was indeed a bug preventing the user to select a different profile, can you please download the latest dev release and try again?

I don't have any sites to update at the moment, but I'll trust you that is fixed. If it's not fixed, I'll report it again at the next Joomla Update haha.
