Seriously? If your database of choice is a chore to backup while live, you need to rethink your choice.

Full or incremental backups should be a trivial operation, with support for intra-backup change capture only a little more effort (log shipping, replication, etc.)

Of all the reasons to lose data, "Backups are hard!" should not be in the list.
