Akeeba Backup
I haven't tried any other backup component yet, but as long as joomlapack is out there I will not need to. This component is simply incredible! It has ample features, superb support, it is easy to use and it is absolutely free. I have restored backup sites (mostly test sites) at least 100 times. Only once did I encounter a problem and it was not joomlapack' s fault. Despite this, the support by Nicholas and Dale was outstanding. This is the kind of support (and product) that makes the open source community very proud and keeps the dream alive. DONATE when you can.
The previous reviews pretty much paint the picture: Extremely powerfull tool with unbelievable flexibility and potential. And Great support.
Ok there is a small learning curve, true, but it is definetely worth it, no doubt about it.

Before downloading it I read this review about support being on a paid only basis. NOT TRUE:I haven't given these guys a cent and the support I got was very fast and precise both times I needed it. The developper himself (Rob) took an interest in my problem and fixed it.

I wish I could get half of this support as a paid subscriber from some other 'bigshot' components. Their great dedication will lead Fabrik straight to the top.

Thanks Hugh and Rob, you guys rock!
