    The “export” tool will backup posts, pages, etc, but it’s not really what you want for disaster recovery, as it won’t backup themes, plugins or their related settings.

    Ideally you’d want to setup your Updraft or any comparable backup plugin to backup both the database and wp-content directory. This would give you the best chance to recover from a disaster.

    Backups are best stored external to your hosting account – ie) another server, dropbox, etc…

    You should also set your retention points and a restoration process to ensure your recovery point and recovery time objectives are met.

    I hope this helps
