Will BackupBuddy work on a WordPress Multi-Site setup and will it also backup the sites on the netwrok?

Welcome to the forums! For the backup side, yes, BackupBuddy works on WordPress Multisites [I use it to backup both the db's and full files backup daily on 2 Multisite networks, each with several sites]. It will backup everything [all tables and all directories, including all the blog.dir/xx directories] when enabled on the top domain. Restoring requires some extra work as mentioned in the other forums; if you search the other threads it can give you a good idea as to whether you should use it right away in its current form or wait for future updates which should have more reliable restoration steps.
Also, a new BackupBuddy MS plugin is currently being developed [already out in beta and works perfectly] which also allows you to import single sites into existing Multisites easily with only a few clicks and absolutely no extra setup from your end.
If you've any other questions please let us know!

I'll install it and see how things go. By the way there is this new mode of backup that just doesn't work for me - were can I find information about it?
