Windows GUI Backup/Restore Tool

Good day,
Not the world's greatest DBA, but please bear with me.
Use MySql on web server to host some forums, photos, websites, for local charities. Have for a dozen years. :)

Migrated off the good ol' Windows 2003 server, now on 2012R2.
Got the latest & greatest MySql instance running now, only to discover that the new console tool (workbench) no longer has backup/restore capabilities.

Old version, for those who aren't familiar... could select tables, data, do scheduled backups to file... all very friendly.
Restore, could be very granular as well, with options to overwrite or not, etc.

I recognize that there is a move towards CLI and scripting again (funny how that pendulum goes back and forth)... but is there a tool out there like the old console?
Or, a concise set of steps, for dummies? :)

it's going to hold a lot more data now, than the old one did... and I need to know I'm saefguarding it, AND, that I can restore selections if I had to.

Even happy to pay a little... but it's volunteer work for charity, so... ;)

thanks everyone!
