I use Mascon from scibit to view my database.  It has a dump facility to
dump to another database or to a local file.  I am afraid of the first
option lest it overwrites tables already on the other server.  When I dump
to a local file it is a text file and I can't work out how I would restore
from this file.  The support desk isn't answering and the notes don't cover
restoring.  That's the background.  The question is how do people out there
back up their database residing on a server to a local file? Ideally I would
download the database and save on a CD, and be able to restore from this if
the worst happened.
