This really should be a part of the the Joomla core.
Every site needs this component installed! Backups are important and you need you do them often.
This is simple to use. After you config your settings it's as simple as pressing a button to create a backup of your files and database.
If you need to move your site from one server to another, just back it up and use the kickstart to install it on your new server. It's that simple.
The Remote Control lets you backup multiple sites from your desktop and even download the backups for local storage. And this is all free!
Upgrading the latest Joomla update takes seconds using this as does making back-ups.
