MySQLadmin - "Add 'Drop tables' in Export Options
MySQLadmin export options includes a checkbox to "Add 'Drop tables'"
Is this to add in a line to the export file that deletes the table if it happens to still exist after a crash etc?
Should it be used for routine backups?

if you tick the box add drop tables the script will have the statement
DROP TABLE TABLENAME
at the top of the script. This is to delete the table in case there is a table with that name in the database. I always tick the box when I make a backup...
