WordPress Backup plugins for your blog

1. VaultPress

This is rather a service than a plugin but does the job right. Unfortunately is not free, around 15$/month for a basic service that includes real-time backups, downloadable archives, stats, activity log, disaster recovery and other nice features. If you can afford this, I recommend it!
