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.
