you still sound very interesting, but until now you haven't really shown -
demonstrated HOW you actually do the backup. BlaBlaBla isn't helping others.
So we would be really interested to know the steps and the scripts to see
how it is possible to manage all these backups. Please try to write a small
tutorial for the community and post it here or with a link to your
blog/tutorial site, so that the TYPO3 Community can actually see - how you
are doing it and learn from it.

It is not the matter if someone needs an extension or not it is simply the
fact that this extension is helping the community and until now all your
wording isn't helpful at all. Well there are lots of Backup solutions out
there, commercial and others but it does not make any sense to name them

Please show how you do!
Post your script with a short explanation!
Give an Example!
Inspire to share!
Get others to know about your solution!
Improve your solution by getting feedback from others!
Give people the freedom of knowing about and learning from it!
