Use a plugin called backWPup that will do everything for you. Daily!
It allows you to:
- clean and save your database
- select the folders you want to back-up; this is very important because you can save in your computer the uploads/2012, 2011, etc. folders and just update the current year
- upload the .zip file to an account in Dropbox automatically, leave the six last bacups and delete the seventh to have a full set of seven copies
Once you setup this system, you only need to care about to download the backup file from time to time to your computer and check the integrity of the database and the files installing it on a new blog in your computer or server.
Hope it helps.
