MySqlBackupGUI is a Windows GUI application for performing remote backups on MySQL databases.
The database information is downloaded to the local machine and stored as an SQL file. Which can then be easily restored using phpMySQLAdmin or other such like utility.
The whole backup process is done using mysqldump.exe which is embedded in this application and extracted to the temp folder, where it is run.
You can specify server/username/password/database and location for storing the backed up sql files. These settings are kept in the registry so they dont have to be constantly entered.
The backups are automatically named in the following format:-
[PATH]/servername database name dd-mm-yy hh-mm.sql
Once settings have been saved, automatic backups can be performed using Windows Scheduler if the -auto option is added to the commandline. This -auto option will run the program without a GUI and will automatically run the backup.
Operating System: Windows 98/2000/XP/2003

No install, just run the application and enter you settings.
If you want to remove the registry settings, you can find them at the following location in Regedit.exe:-
