Hi Morgan,

What host are you on Linux or Windows and what type of access do you have? You can FTP the files to your local hard drive for testing after you've exported the DB to a text file.

Haven't tried it but maybe one of the Admin tools on your site will allow a direct file copy down/export or you might be able to do a FULL site backup and download that locally (that is actually better, then if your ISP has a drive failure or something like that then you have a backup of your site)
