I've got a WordPress installation installed on subdirectory of my directory (Wordpress and all data files are on the directory). Unfortunately, when I set up Wordpress I had the site URL and WordPress URL list the path to the directory: http://myUserName.host.com/subdirectory
When I went live, all my pages are found at http://myUserName.host.com/subdirectory/page, and I'm stumped as to how to make them show up as http://www.myDesiredURL/page.
Will Backup Buddy allow me to back up my site, and then reinstall with everything in http://www.myDesiredURL/page format? I don't care about widgets - I can fix those!

You can certainly migrate your site from http://yoursite.com/subdirectory/ to http://yoursite.com/ using BackupBuddy. This functionality is in place and BackupBuddy will handle migrating all URLs including widget content. If you are wanting to have your site URL and WordPress URL differ you can currently do that as well; however, widget content will not have the WordPress URL data migrated for you currently. We are releasing a beta migration script next week which adds that capability.
Most users just keep the site and WordPress URL the same and migrate all WordPress files to simplify things which has been available in BackupBuddy since its beginning.
