  • It must run under windows
  • I would like only choose MySQL folder source and destination folder for backup, second setup time when start backup. For example once time at week.

Backups of MySQL are normally done via the command line but if you really want a GUI interface you could use something like HeidiSQL, which allows you to export and import your data as eithe CSV or SQL files, which you can place wherever you like.

I do recommend that you learn to use the command line tools, such as mysqldump as that will allow you to automate these things, which is how backups should be run.
