Add backup to data store online will better.
I hope at next version.

Integrate this in drupal core pls.
I can't understand why this module is not integrated by default in drupal core. I use it, need it on every site. Everybody does.. why ??
Pretty good module
Cuz we don't have another free way to backup our content.. i need to say its a good module. Good job anyway!
Great documentation, great plugin!
Sry for my english first..
I'm begginer on drupal. When i start using drupal.. in the first 2-3 months this cms created me headaches. I don't know what the **** i was doing to my site.. but allways i got crashes, and needed to start from beggining again. write content, design again..
I didn't know that there is a way to backup your content. All of this stopped when i finded this Awesome plugin. 5 stars for him, and for drupalmodules.com.
Great Module - Can't be without it
Love this module, really easily to back up and move drupal sites using this module.. - just couldn't be without it.
I install this module on every my site.
Create and restore DB dumps with one click! Really awesome!
Saved my day/night.. thank you
This awesome module saved my day even in my local development set up... and since the backup was so crucial I'll give you a 5/5 for everything....
have been working for more than 10 hours now.. trying to meet my deadline.. had reached about 90% of pre-production development and that's where my site began to crash. As I began testing the Location module along with the Gmap module the Admin module started displaying its queer status message error.. the status message kept on piling without disappearing.. trying this and that my content-type too began to crash showing MySQL has gone away error..
& because after installing this module my site had taken an automatic back up.. that's the only reason i got saved.... Thank you very much once again!
Its one of the best modules to make backup i have ever seen in most CMS platforms and fortunately this module is written for Drupal. The good feature of this module is making backups using multiple ways. For example the feature of scheduling backups and sending them to email address, is a good way for protecting database and having a copy from it to the email address of admin.
I used it to transfer from my local drupal installation to an online shared hosting account and had no problems
Extensive documentation and it works perfectly!
Super, Smashing, Great!
Works like a dream, never had a problem with it and is used extensivly on all my sites.
works very well indeed
so much easier than using mysql tools. many options available. going to use it on all my sites.
An absolute must have!
This app means I can easily work offline on my laptop and upload the database to the server when i go online with the press of two buttons... just brilliant!
this is one of the helpfulest modules i know.
thanks for that.
Backup & Migrate
It's a little confusing to set up scheduled backups, I wish they could simplify that process. Other than that, I can't express how many times this module has saved my life. Absolutely necessary for any Drupal installation.
One of the most useful Admin modules
Makes so easy to backup / restore and migrate the MySQL part of the Drupal based site.
This is the review as written on my site www.drupaltist.org.
The database of your website contains practically all the content of the site. Losing that is losing whatever was contributed. Folders containing the drupal-modules can be downloaded again from drupal.org, userlists, productinformation, frontpages, taxonomy, and whatever else that is preserved in the database can't. So making copies of (the content in) the database is essential.
The first time I migrated my database I used PhpMyAdmin, a tool that is readily available by my provider, and that was also installed on my computer when I downloaded WampServer. PhpMyAdmin is probably the best program in the world to look deeper into a MySql-database, but not very easy to work with when exporting or importing databases. I like to know what I'm doing, it took me a while to figure out what buttons I had to push to migrate my database.
The excellent Backup and Migrate-module (B&M) helps me now. It has two important functions for me: it makes a copy of the content in my database every so often (automatically) and I use it to export a file that I can import later again. So, ideal for migrating a database.
Would be perfect if it also backed up the files directory. EDIT - just discovered the "Backup and Migrate Files" plugin. Ask and ye shall receive!
Great relaible tool, but a minor security/usability issue
I've used this module extensively and I think it's great. It lets you easily backup your files to zip or download them with a very intuitive interface. I've personally had it fail only once.
However, one thing I should note is the security permissions issue I've run into with the latest module for 6x which uses the function tempnam() creating 600 permissions for the web server user. Because these permissions are set in code, it's very difficult to work around them, even if you have the webserver running as a group to which your ftp users belong. what this means is that you have to use the interface in order to download the files out or come up with a more clever scheme for handling your files outside of drupal itself. I am reluctant to suggest hacking the module, with a chmod() called after creation of the file as a 'quick fix' because of any other security implications it may cause but it *is* an option. It's probably better to have too-strict security than not enough and since this module is dealing with your database, it's more important to have more security than less, imo.
don't take things for granted people, there might be a glitch.
I've done some testing and you should do the very same coz for me it didn't back up ALL the tables. So, for the moment I give it a "totally unreliable" rate and I really really wish it was not.
Keep developing, I'll keep testing and reviewing :-)
As stated by others, this module simply works, does pretty much everything it states it will do. All it needs is a way to backup the directory and we're all set!
Wow, short and simple, to the point and it just works
Ok, I am probably the hardest rater on this site. 3 means average. And I must admit I never looked at this modules documentation. (OOPS)!
Well gratefully, it is perfect. It is so well done that you don't need any documentation to use it1
Does exactly what I need
I wanted something that would automatically backup my DB according to my preferred schedule and only keep a week's worth at a time-- this does exactly that. I didn't need to read any of the documentation, it was all extremely easy to use.
Can I speak about a module that way?
If not I would just say sublime!
This module saved me from having to write a half-assed .bat script on my WAMP site! Hooray!
This module has saved my life
A great "must have" module.
I really like that you can easily save a backup both on your server, or download it easily to your local machine.
I give the documentation a 5 so as not to punish this module...but to be honest, I have never needed to read any documentation. The module is intuitive enough on its own.
Gives me great comfort every time I do an upgrade.
very simple but useful module. an essential module for development purposes.
This is the best backup module i have come across.. Seems to be so much like phpMyAdmin the true db backup style .. :) and actually better.. I really liked the feature of backup schedule where you can specify the timeperiod between two backups and also specify the number of backup files to be saved!
Thanks man... just what i needed!
15 minutes to clone your site
It takes 15 Minutes to clone a drupal installation using this module. A clean install, usage and migration. GREAT Work!!!
Missing some features, also the interface is a bit fuzzy IMHO.
This is an essential module for backing up your Drupal mySQL database. You just need to use this and zip up your Sites directory. You should be able to backup your site within 15 minutes. An essential module !
Gives a good feeling :-)
You can develop Your site anywhere and place it on any site You wish. Great work, great tool!
Totally vital module. Couldn't develop without it.
saved my bacon
This module does what it says and does it well. It saved me when my install went bad and I didn't realize that my host backups had stopped.
When I first heard about this module I could not believe it. I uploaded it, installed and configured it, and started creating backups. Everything I heard was true. It is indispensable to the operation of a drupal site. You will wonder how you lived without it.
I love this module. Been using it for about a month and it saves me hours of hassle every week.
It allows you to selectively backup tables and data from your database, so the backup is much *cleaner* than I used to get when using mysqldump from the command line. It's also much faster. I can quickly create a backup of my live site, upload it into my local site or qa or sandbox or whatever... and be back to real work in a couple of minutes or less.
It also allows you to schedule backups, which is really nice to have.
Overall ... this is one of the best utility modules I've discovered for drupal in a long time.
Simple backup should be in core!
This is a simple backup util for Drupal that should be in core, only additional suggestion is to backup the /sites directory as well.
Works well in Drupal 6
I am using this module with Drupal 6 to copy configurations from one installation to the next and the beta is working quiet well. Just the multi-select option lists should be replaced by checkboxes, because this would be easier to use (don't click without holding down the ctrl key!). So 4 points for "Ease Of Use", but it's indeed a very useful module.
Exactly what I needed
Genius module, best one I've downloaded in ages. Does exactly what you want it to do, in a straight-out-the-box kind of way. This is really, really, great.
Worth its weight in Gold!
This module is perfect. Does what it says perfectly. I was able to take a production site, install this module, backup the database and re-create it on my dev server in about 4 minutes!
This took me about 3 hours or more previously.
Great great great
I can't say enough good things about this module. I will never do Drupal without one. What a lifesaver. Backup as I am developing the site - every time I screw things up really badly - do a quick restore and everything is all better. What a pleasure!
Powerful Database Backup Tool
Integrated Powerful Database Backup Tool für Drupal 5.x and 6.x.
It's very fast and easy to config. Very helpful if you want to test new modules. I have tested the latest version 6.x-1.x-dev (2008-Mar-31) and it's working fine.
