    The Tools -> Export will only work per blog, not all blogs. So you need to go to each individual blog and do Tools -> Export.

    Alternatively, if you have access, you could use phpmyadmin and back up the database directly.

    @apaunganhote - I am looking for the same thing. Did you ever find a solution? currently I am just doing a mysqldump via a shell script, but I wanted something a little more granular and easily re-imported if there ever was a disaster.

    I found this link, which apparently works great for WP, but its unusable for WPMU

    I thought about changing it to work with WPMU, but I got stuck at the point where you need to specify the user's WP password, and all you can pull from the mySQL database is the password hash.

    If you have a db dump, you can easily rebuild. :)

    If you wanted granularity on just the users, then just export those tables.
