    Hi!
    I want to update MP (from 1.18.0. pre to 1.18.0) and wonder if there is a possibility to do this WITHOUT the creation of a backup of MP and TV-Server.
    The reaseon is: it really takes loooooooong time because I have maaaaaannnnyy files in my thumbs Folder. I do have an actual backup of MP - so I don't need the backup wich is made during update of MediaPortal.
    Maybe some Parameter?
    Thanks in advance:)

    Yep, there seems to be a bug in the installer ;)
    Solution:
    Look for the MP deploy folder (normally C:\Users\*yourusername*\AppData\Local\Temp\MediaPortal Installation\deploy), start the package-mediaportal.exe and remove the arrow from create backup (or so) ;)
