    Hi,

    In the years I've been using Media Portal I did a lot of bookmarks in my favourite scenes of films.

    The problem is I always end up losing my bookmarks, when I upgrade or downgrade or I don't know how, but I'm always repeating the same bookmarks and losing them after some months.

    Is there a way to backup the bookmarks and keep them for a new or fresh installation of the MP program?

    I guess not, but I would appreciate very much if someone could confirm that or give some useful tip.



    Thank you in advance

    I assume you're talking about the bookmarks in MyVideo?
    Those should all be saved in you Videos database, together with everything else. I assume your videos collection stays untouched during up/downgrades?

    Thank you for answering.
    Yes, I was talking about bookmarks in MyVideo.

    So, is there a way to backup the Videos database?

    I forgot to tell that I also lose bookmarks, obviously, when I restore a previous image of the system (I do that now and then with Norton Ghost, when I encounter some issues in Windows).

    If I could backup the Videos database and overwrite the old database that I have restored, then my problem will disappear.
    Is that possible?
    Thank you again.

    Yes, that's very much possible! You can backup ALL your MediaPortal setting, plugin settings, databases & thumbs.
    database >> C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\database
    thumbs >> C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\thumbs
    XML files with settings >> C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal

    You can simply backup the folders, but an easier way is to use the BackupSettings plugin.

    Thank you very much!
    That plugin works perfectly. I had no idea that existed.
