Well it is optimized to save as many records as possible. Therefore it can't just copy very large blocks of data like for example phpMyAdmin would do. But if you use it on a damaged database, you can save the most records with it, as it jumps over records it can't read.
I developed this tool as I had to restore a database with important data where in some tables there were damaged records. With this tool, I saved about 99% of the database. While running I had to restart the MySQL server a view times. With phpMyAdmin the crash would just stop the copying and the SQL file would be inconsistent.
