    I need to do a clean install of windows and am going to lose my MP stuff. What would be the best way to capture the settings that I have (TV server and MP) so I can return them once I get MP up and running on my new drive?

    Thank you as always

    A Plugin named Backupsettings should do the job. It exports every settings file from MP and from the Tv-Server.
    Even scheduled Backups are possible.

    The Plugin can be installed through the Extension installer

    Download backup settings from MPEI or from the website here https://www.team-mediaportal.com/extensions/system/backupsettings you can backup all the tv server settings and tv/radio channels and mediaportal settings including thumbs.
    It will be installed as a TV Server Pluggin if you have a tv server so your find it in TV Server configuration under pluggins once you have installed it.

    Hope this helps it certainly saves hours or reconfiguring.

    One Thing: be sure that your new installed System has the same Name like the old installation.
