Database Backup not working

Dear All,

We have been using OpenERP 7 on Windows for our production and have been successfully taking database dump using backup once in a week. Though there are no changes in the settings, we are now facing problem in getting database dump. 
After entering the correct password and clicking on the Backup button, the status shows as loading....still loading......be patient....don't leave yet it is still loading.......you may not believe it but the application is actually loading.......take a minute to get a coffee because it's loading.......but the database dump is not created.

I get a final message as "May be you should considering reloading the application by pressing F5..." . Still I do not get the database dump.

I would appreciate if any help is available to resolve this issue.

Its advisable to use ubuntu or other linux flavour for production.

For now talking about solution to resolve your issue, you may run psql commands to get the back up.

Backup: $ pg_dump -U {user-name} {source_db} -f {dumpfilename.sql}

Restore: $ psql -U {user-name} -d {desintation_db}-f {dumpfilename.sql}
