As already mentioned backing up mnesia isn't the whole story.

But the mnesia:backup/1,2 and mnesia:restore/2 functions can take a simple
filename as their first parameter and do exactly what you expect for backing
up and restoring the same DB on the same Node (for moving stuff around, a
bit more effort is required). The documentation could be a little bit more
obvious on that, I guess.

Also have a look at the bup.erl in the mnesia examples folder for some of
the more complicated scenarios.
