Anyway, here's my question...
I ran across phpMyAdmin (the import database feature) and it stated that you cannot upload a database bigger than 100mb.
In regards to Backup buddy, does this same limitation apply? If they don't, is there any such limitation on when a database is too big to backup and import or repair?
I'm thinking about purchasing your latest version of backup buddy but need to know if there are any issues in this area.
I'm afraid that my database will become too big that even backup buddy won't be able to load the database back online if my site gets hacked or if I have issues in the future. I use WooCommerce so the database is constantly growing in size. Currently, it's at almost 70mb and growing.
If this issue doesn't even exist with backup buddy, how is it that you load in the database without the issues of the 100mb limitation set by phpMyAdmin?

BackupBuddy doesn't have any specific size limits on the backup, files, or database. And I haven't heard of a 100MB limit affecting things with the database. The only "limits" a person will really hit is the limits of the host's servers. If the host's server has a low max PHP runtime (max_execution_time) then naturally it will be harder for the server to build the zip file of a backup in time before timing out, for example.
