No.

One approach would be to schedule a script to create the backup.
Then on your backup server setup an automated FTP script to fetch the backup off of the router.

At the moment I use the e-mail backup option but also wish FTPing files could be done from one script right on the router.

Resolution on our company is do some linux machine with FTP server (in our pure-ftpd with mysql support). At 4am we execute cron which done simple php script to walk on mysql list of routerboard which connect to ftp clients (routerboard & PC) and download file named for example backup which is created every 8 hour by tik scheduler. It run absolutly perfect. Downloaded data are packed to tar and storage as DATE_IPADDRESS.TAR on linux machine. If i need backup, i look on web where are listed last packages and download them. Thats all. 8)

Well - as I already have a backup server at home - I rather do it the other way around.
I wrote it down in my FAQ, maybe it can be an option for you.

For my solution I wrote a Perl script that use telnet and ftp. The script has a config file and a list file that contains all the information needed to login to the mikrotiks and a list of the IPs of the mikrotiks. The perl script then runs through the list of mikrotik IPs and logs into them via telnet creates the backup file and then ftps the file off the mikrotik a directory on the machine running perl. It has worked really well for me for quite some time now. I will try to get the script uploaded to the wiki in the next few days.
