More and more people are using WordPress as their platform to host their weblog site. WordPress stores all the post content that the author writes in MySQL database. After spending many hours writing articles, the last thing you want is a hard disk failure or a cracker hacked in your server and wipes out all your data on the server’s hard drive. There are ways to backup using phpMyAdmin or WordPress Backup plugins but they are all offsite plugin which requires the author to download and store the backup data to the computer. Humans tend to get lazy overtime and stop creating periodic backups.

7-Zip is able to compress files with very high compression saving precious hard disk space. Most people use this to compress multiple files into one so that it can be easily transferred and shared. Other than that, 7Zip can also be used to backup files by simply right clicking on a folder and compress. Because 7Zip is not a backup tool, there are no options to make it as a convenient backup solution.

You will have to specify the source that you want to backup, the backup filename and the destination of where you want to backup file to be saved in.
