How to automate solution backup without backing up the entire database?

  
How to automate the following...

1) "Create a solution to backup all eSpaces and Extensions on platform server (excluding all systems components) "
2) Upload the latest backup solution file to ftp server as per schedule (once a day).
(once we have the latest binary this task is easy). 
Hey Robert,

Upfront warning: this may be funny :)

I've done something on the past to do something similar, and I've used Selenium for that :); I've just checked and at least both "Save" buttons are "Sumbit" buttons, so it should be quite simple to automate that with Selenium. Shout if you want a hand with that :) 

Also, since you want all espaces you may use the "*" to include them all;

Hi Robert,

Why don't you create a LifeTime plugin for this? Check out the LifeTime SDK reference and this post about creating a LifeTime plugin.

Well, I can see you have system-tables of the Solution.

But how to create a running-version of something?

There are tables system entities that have the espace versions, and the corresponding binary data.
