You were on the right track with mysqldump. Windows doesn't have a direct cron equivalent - but it does have the ability to schedule tasks. Write a short batch file or equivalent (you should be able to whip one together in no time with a little googling) and schedule it to run.
I doubt you'll find a tool that does exactly what you want that's any more advanced or configurable - there's just no need. That said - who knows, people make all kinds of software to fill what others perceive as unneeded.
