[SOLVED]All database images vanished, resotred from backup but still not showing ? - roden - 09-18-2012

Ok, this is the second time my database has vanished, for some reason none of the pics are showing, i restored from my database backup, that i did 2 days before, and they still do not show?

But i can see the files on the memory card ?

Running open elec 1.0.2

please provide a bit more information. Your database vanished, which database (are you using Mysql?)

Which file did you restore and HOW did you do this?

Mysql?

The database as in the one that stores all of your movie information / covers ect, spent ages getting it perfect and it vanished, so i did it again, this time i backed it up to my external HDD using the export video database option in the video menu. And few days later BANG gone again. So i tried to restore using the restore video database, which it does, then none of the information shows???.

I can see the files on the SD card from my pc, so why is it not showing?.

If i manually refresh the info for each film then it reappears again...

Isnt this what the database backup is for?

Ok this is starting to pi** me of to be honest.

Now after setting up a brand new card, and restoring the backed up database i still cannot see any picture in my video section, unless i manually add them 1 by 1. I use the file list part, i prefer it, library mode is off.

If i select movies on the menu and not files, i get the pictures, but half the movies will not play as it says this title is no longer available and there are 2 of each, but i can play it from the file list.

???

I just tried the latest beta, and after doing a video database restore its doing the same?

Am i doing something wrong?

I am now almost sure that this is not openelec related, but XBMC or even more specific a scraper issue.

I am not sure if you also need to manually backup the "thumbnail" directory for the fanart data, while exporting the database....

Which scraper do you use?

Also open up a forum post on http://forum.xbmc.org

I use the default as set, but i backed up the entire .xmbc folder, And Userdata folder and Configfiles folder, that should put it right yes?

Ok, ive setup the entire system again, recreated my entire databse again!, and backed it all up by the pc, setup a new card and copied across and its the same, i am now happy i have a backup.

You guys need to build a full backup feature into this, its to much to loose when it goes wrong.

Stupid
