Backup Tables


Backup Tables Wizard allows you to make a copy of all the table files to a local backup directory.

 

Currently MySQL supports backup only for tables of MyISAM storage engine. The service copies *.frm (definition) and *.myd (data) files. The index file can be rebuilt from those two. The copied table is locked with a read lock during the backup process.

 

Note: This tool is not accessible for MySQL 5.5 and higher.

 

Note: You cannot backup tables on a remote server; backup works only for local databases. To backup tables from a remote server, you can use Extract Database, and then restore them using SQL Script Editor.

 

To run the wizard, select the Services | iconBackupTables Backup Tables... main menu item.
