Quick question about backup folder - smallclone - 2015-07-27

Hi,

I normally back up Kodi to my network drive, so I was surprised to see a very large .tar file in the XBMC>Backup folder.

I assume this is a rogue backup I have misplaced, so can I delete it?

It's the only file in the folder. Thanks.

if you mean the backup addon, then ask the addon author. Kodi core does not create any backup folders

Thanks for the reply. I don't really know what it is. It was created about a month ago and is named in the convention of a backup file (28072015 etc) but is a .tar file and is very large, thus taking space on my device. It must have been created automatically I think.
