Can anyone recommend a good PHP web site backup program?

I would like it to be freeware and simple.

I just need to backup one directory on a daily basis and need it to be
zipped and emailed to me.
I searched on Google and the popular script download sites, but can't
find exactly what I'm looking for.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

I'm using:

http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/...backup-script/

It does precisely what I want it to do. I have a batch file that I fire it
from that is simply:

php /{webroot}/backup_dbs.php

and I am running this on a Windows box so I have Windows scheduler call this
batch file at 5 am everyday. Does exactly what I need, and judging from your
post, what you need too. -R. Vince

Thanks for all of the responsed, but I don't need a MYSQL backup
program. I need a program that will just backup a single folder for
me. Does anyone know of a backup program like that?
Thank for your help!

Doh! Sorry 'bout that. A lot of websites are built in CMS's backed
up by MySQL, I just forgot that it wasn't all of them! 8-(
