[Release] Backup (formerly XBMC Backup)

did what you said, tried on another share, my laptop same problem

Let me know thanks

You can always "roll back" the addon if you've downloaded it from the official XBMC repo. If you haven't done that you can look through the github commits and download the ones you need. To make things a little easier here are the commits from the past few versions:

version 0.0.4

0b0d8dab3f0dcc9036dfe5dce6dd42962011a34a

0.0.5

b6d78ea77b7b2bccd4c30aef93e2c896ff4f152e

0.0.6

1d320cd6016aaa55932fc00a33527c088a9a9d97

https://github.com/robweber/xbmcbackup

I am curious to know if this behavior has something to do with files on your system, or is an issue with ATV2 in general. Anyone else using an apple TV?

tried to click on committs says 404 webpage looking for can not be found
Did not install via official repo

Anyway you can just ZIP them up and send to me maybe PM me .005 and ,006 and see if I can make those work

Thanks again!

@schumi2004 - tracing the error it looks like the python json libraries don't like something to do with the characters found (utf8 error) in your files. If you turn on debugging you may at least get the name of the file that is causing the error, although it is happening within a python library so there isn't a whole lot that can be done (other than removing the file).

Ok, where does it goes wrong?
In that folder (recordlabel https://www.dropbox.com/s/spfhmbfoc4veey...dlabel.zip) only 2 files seems to be messing things up
A&M.png and A&M Records.png

Edit:
Deleting those 2 files didn't help.

@matt77303 - The first version you have listed is in the correct xml format. I put it on my system and the issue you're seeing is that your cron times are not valid. It should be minute hour day_of_month months_of_year days_of_week. In the expression you have you're essentially saying it should run at 30:23 which isn't a valid hour. The same for the other one, you have 59:23 when you probably meant 23:59. Just reverse the hour and minute and everything should work.

@dallasnights - don't use the commit links, the forum just puts those in there and they aren't meant to do anything. If you click on the github repo link and find them from there they will work. Not trying to make this difficult for you but I'm not going to start compiling and maintaining every version of an addon when there are methods available for people to find them.

@schumi2004 - Am I correct in seeing that this is in the AeonMQ skin? For some reason that skin seems to be a real problem with unicode errors and this script. If I ever figure out exactly what I'll let you know (don't use that skin myself but can find and download it).

This addon backups up everything in the special://home directory. This includes user installed addons plus the userdata folder which has all of your databases, thumnails, sources, and favorites. On an ATV this directory would be /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC

Backing up that whole directory would let you restore it in the event you lost something.

It seems after a clean install running MQ3 XBMC Backup is working again. I think some addon i haven't installed yet is the problem.

So far i have a pretty complete backup but for OpenELEC i'm missing i folder. Is there a way to have 1 field which let you select a custom folder for backup and restore??

Now it picks the folders stored in .xbmc

@ schumi2004

Your idea sounds reasonable. Having a field where you could type an absolute system path seems like it would be fairly simple and a good feature to have.

I can't guarantee when I'll get around to adding it. Kind of tied down to another non-xbmc project at the moment. Within the week? I'll post back here when I have something (patches welcome Smile )

Your backup should import into the windows version of XBMC just fine. All of the xbmc files in the backup directory are platform independent so your configuration, addons, library, etc should all load into a new version of xbmc, even on a different OS.

Another thank-you from me for the add-on! It has already been immensely useful for me for duplicating settings from one installation (lounge) to another (bedroom), and is a massive time saver! Great work!!

#1. One minor issue I'm having is that the settings for the skin I use (Quartz) is not backed up. Everything else appears to work really well (addons, settings, thumbs, etc), just the skin-specific settings. Since I have customized the home screen of this skin quite considerably, it would be nice if this could also be saved.

#2. Feature request: Cyclic backups. How tricky would it be to provide a setting within the XMBC Backup add-on that would back up to 'X' different folders cyclicly (i.e. each time you back-up, it switches to the next folder). This way, you could store a short history of backups, and if something messes up, you can revert to an earlier backup. The number of folders could be user controlled, allowing them to decide how much space the backups should take. What do you think?

Team,

I seem to have backed up successfully but can't find the file! I set the path to a directory on my NAS but there's nothing there. The add-on ran and collected all the data. I had no error messages. I have searched my complete NAS and PC for xbmc_backup but there is no sign of the file. Any ideas?

Thanks
