  • Personally the backup through Central Admin is ok for for adhoc backups but you would be better to run through Powershell or Stsadm for automated or scheduled ones.  A reason to use the link in CA is that you may allocated the backup to an Admin but you don't want them to have access to the server or powershell etc.
