Previously we had XtraBackup Windows binaries for 1.0 and 1.2 releases, and they were based on Cygwin compilation of MySQL.

After MySQL 5.5 moved to CMake, and cygwin compilation is not supported anymore, it took some efforts for us to come up with native Windows builds, but they are there already. We consider them “alpha” quality, as there some know limitations,
but you should be able to make backup and restore from it. If you are interested in Windows backup I encourage you to give it a try and report your experience. Binaries are available there https://www.percona.com/downloads/XtraBackup/XtraBackup-1.6/Windows-alpha/

  • Peter,

    Current limitation is that you may need several tries to come up with proper working
    command line.
    Also some file paths may not work, i.e C:tmp will be treated as “C:[tab]mp” and you
    will need to change it to C://tmp (including in my.ini).

    We tested with ActivePerl version for Windows.

    link dos not exits,
    i want use xtrabackup in windows, i don find version for wondows.

  • Hopefully this will save someone else some time: I didn’t realise at first that this binary is specific for MySQL 5.5+ since the on-disk format for InnoDB has changed since 5.1.

  • Hello Vadim,
    i’m looking for a mature version of xtrabackup or innobackupex for windows, but just found this post. and having “alpha release of xtrabackup 1.6”. i just want to ask, if something has done on this version in a span of 5 years, as it is november 2016?

      • My bad 🙁
        i am working on a project which is windows based and no one is asking about it since 2011.
        But luckily got your response, thank you for it.

        just want to confirm couple of things

        1. if “xtrabackup 1.6 try me edition” is capable of taking streamed backup or is there any other way to do it?

        as we can do it in
        innobackupex with –stream option?

        2. any future plan in percona to provide windows based solution?
