Re: Backup without much disk space

If you are doing a mysqldump and don't have enough disk space for the output, what are the alternatives?

* If you have some space, but not enough, compress on the fly:
mysqldump ... | gzip >dump.gz
(This may not work well on Windows.)

* Pull the output from another machine:
host2$ mysqldump -h host1 ... >dump.sql
This may require granting access explicitly for host2.
