Dump FS using mkisofs or backup ALL config files - Tiwas - 03-02-2012

Are there any functionality for this? I miss the ability to easily back up a working installation and associated dbs (including sabnzbd, sick beard and couch potato) and easily get them back WHEN, not if, the USB stick crashes.

Insert another stick in the machine, then in xbmc file manager copy all of /storage/.xbmc, .config to the other stick.

You need to enable xbmc to show hidden files to do this. I'm using xbmc in finnish and can't be bothered to check what's the direct path in english. However, in default confluence skin it's the first entry ("UI settings or something"), then third from top ("file lists").

So...all the files I need are in /storage? If so, is it possible to use crontab to rsync it somewhere?
