Backup and restore of your shares

The following instructions are for backing up the list of shares along with the tags and titles and restoring them into a potentially different installation path of TVersity.

Before reinstalling, backup your feeds, URL and other shares in the following way:

  • Open the “share media command prompt”
  • Run the command:
    ExportShare.bat
  • Now copy a file called import_mediasource.sql to a safe location

After reinstalling to the new location restore the shares in the following way:

  • Open the “share media command prompt”
  • Copy import_mediasource.sql to this location
  • Type the command:
    ImportShare.bat

At this point all the shares are back and you can either do a full refresh or refresh them one by one. If you want to avoid the re-download of stuff that you already have downloaded in the past simply copy the content of the data\download folder from the original TVersity installation to the new one and then do the refresh of feeds. After doing it you can simply delete the TVersity folder from the old location.
