Shouldn't have to write code to backup your database.

I think it is a plus and nice to have if you host your application where there is not much tools or support.
I don't know why the others framework does not have this option? so keep it to make CI Special and Unique some what.

Do not and never have used it. Would not miss it if not implemented.

Please don't remove the feature and we will very much appreciate if the feature exists in upcoming version. Lot of developer may not use the feature, but some developers do. We are developing a web application where we are dumping clients website data using this feature. It helped us a lot minimizing workload.  Thanks.

I use it !

The backup feature of hosting plans costs money !

This FREE feature allow us to save a few bucks every month !

Drop it!

I've looked at the code and basically it just generates and bunch of insert statements for each table.
I think if somebody needs this feature and does not have access to run cron jobs and mysqldump, then they can just as easily have adminer uploaded to the server and use that to manage the database.

I'm on the team of devs that use mysqldump :-)
