    I'm not sure of such a program, but your computer has to be turned on all the while. Why not use a cronjob and send the backups to an email, like a free gMail account or something?

    You mean set up a script to download all of them? Well thats a good idea. But i am so scared of 777 folders now. I know there is some back up scripts on the internet but i am really scared of the 777 folders.

    777 folders give permission to write to the public, whereas 775 (drwxrwxr-x) works as well as 777 (drwxrwxrwx) but is safer.

    Are you running linux or windows?
    In linux, setup a cron job that makes a gzipped tarball, and run a command line smtp mailer to send it to you.
    It's 2 lines of code :D
    You can also automate an ftp connection from the server and do it that way, or place the tarball in a secure web directory and grab it via httpd...

    There are risks using most types of software.

    Are you asking something like Rsync, better to go for a dedicated backup solution for small price it will save lot of man hours to restore the backup

    I think it's also worth noting that if you're hosting a lot of websites on a shared hosting setup, it's probably about time to move to a VPS or dedicated server. I use both for various tasks; yes, it costs more, but the benefits (mostly with respect to security) vastly outweigh the costs.

    You should be able to set up a cron job so that you can get a backup generated and emailed to you. If you need advice on how to do this let me know and I will write you instructions.
