Full Version: XBMC Backup - do I need to keep the 'packages' folder?

Just used XBMC Backup to back up my installation, but noticed that one of the folders ('packages') was just a collection of all the addons I have installed in their original downloaded 'zip' archives. It takes about 150MB on its own, which isn't too bad but I'd rather not have it taking up space if it's not necessary...

I'm wondering if I need to keep this folder, considering I also have all of the addons backed up in their uncompressed format... Or could I exclude this folder from backup?
nope. they are just downloaded zip files of all installed addons including the previous versions.
Cool! So I can ditch them.
