    What is the best way to back up one's blog files? I don't believe WP-DB-Backup does this.

    Where are you hosted ?

    2 options I know of....
    1. Most hosting companies have a cpanel (control panel) from which you can create a backup zip file of all your files into 1 "gz" zip file.
    2. Other option would be for you to use a free FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP to connect to and download all files, folders from your root folder on the host server.
    I prefer #2 because I can simply FTP back all the files and folder in case 1 or more files get corrupt or something. Hope this helps !
