Restoring and backup Kodi settings
(alternative procedure fast method)


This procedure is used both for the firmware update or when installing a new version of Kodi, in order not to lose all the settings, custom settings and everything else.

Requirements:
A- Sufficient space in the internal memory or use of an SD card.

B- The procedure is managed by PC, for which the LAN is used (SAMBA mode activated on HiMedia).

C- Activate the display of hidden files.
Control panel> File Explorer options> View> Show hidden folders, files and drives> Apply


Procedure summary:
The Kodi folders relating to all the personalized settings and settings are temporarily transferred, using the cut and paste method (for this reason it is a fast method), in a "Service folder", that must be created.
When the update has been carried out or the new version of Kodi has been installed, the reverse operation must be carried out.
With the cut and paste method, we take the folders stored in the "Service folder" to copy them to the Kodi installation path.
Operation that ends very quickly.

Details of the procedure:
1- Go to the path "\share\sdcard\" create a folder with name, example "Service folder".




2- Go to the path:
         "\share\sdcard\Android\data\org.xbmc.kodi\files\.kodi"
          and with the right mouse button select "Cut" on the "addons" and "userdata".




3- Return to the folder previously created "Service folder" and with the right mouse button select "Paste"

4- Perform the firmware or Kodi update.

5- Launch Kodi and give the data consent and then exit.

6- Carry out the reverse operation, return to the "Service folder" with the right mouse button, select       
    "Cut" on the "addons" and "userdata" folders.

7- Go back to the Kodi path: "\share\sdcard\Android\data\org.xbmc.kodi\files\.kodi"
     and with the right mouse button select "Paste".

8- Let's go back to the HiMedia main menu and select the "QuickClean" app and restart the box.




9- Launch Kodi and have fun.

If, on the other hand, we wish to backup the "addons" and "userdata" folders, it is better to use the Teracopy tool. This procedure takes time equal to the size of the files, as it must transfer the metadata.
