Quote:tinyMediaManager stores all data (internal database, logs, cache, ..) inside its own folder. Depending on the size of your media library this could be over 100MB.

AFAIK, this is a cask problem and not a tinyMediaManager one. Casks upgrades usually remove the whole application and if the settings are inside the application folder they will be removed as well.

So, you have 3 options:

- Wait for v3 that will add the option to different location of settings and database: https://github.com/tinyMediaManager/tiny...issues/126
- Ask for some guidance in https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-cas...manager.rb, to see if something can be done in Cask Formula;
- Create symbolic links for the data folder before installing the application, so when doing cask upgrade nothing is lost.
