    Hi Guys
    any body knows any good free DB backup software which we can run
    and get your DB backup on your local machine?

    Head on over to SourceForge and run a search. I personally use phpMyBackupPro which you could do and then download the backups or if you have an FTP server it looks as though you could do that with it too.

    Are you looking for something completely automated?

    What is wrong with simply using phpMyAdmin to generate a DB backup?

    I tried phpmybackuppro, played around, very little function
    I visited their website even they did not care to put some correct screen shot about their program in there, the link populariy is low too.
    I visited their forum almost empty
    and I lost one day of my work, just lost my database
    so had to restore my yesterday DB :confused:

    Are you saying that running a backup corrupted your DB? Well, obviously, that's not supposed to happen and I certainly would not have recommended something that I had seen such a problem with.

    Sorry to hear that and I will stop recommending it.
