Basically, what you're asking for is a custom ROM, which isn't possible, at least with current sticks. The best you can do is backup/restore the data portions of /sdcard/.

TYVM for your time , i was just wondering if it was possible cuz that would be great , like an iphone, you back up everything and if it gets damaged buy a new one and send everything back, thanks again

What's the exact message and where/when does it occur? Is this also reflected in your log?

I'd also check the contents of the /sdcard/xbmc_env.properties file (it points to the location of the external data) and double-check that the files are missing via the file manager or via ADB shell. Also, this is probably not connected, but my gen2 FTV will no longer reliably keep an external sd mounted and other times it complains that the card needs to be formatted.

From logs:
backup: /sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata//Thumbnails: No such file or directory

I checked sdcard root, and I can't see a xbmc_env.properties file using explorer.

if you don't have an xbmc_env.properties file, Kodi won't know where to find your relocated data. adbLink creates this file when it initially moves your data. Check your external sdcard and see if your data is there. If your data's present you can add the xbmc_env.properties file by hand.

I set it up in advancedsettings.xml, and I'm comfortable it works since I have thumbnails, and was able to back those up without error.

If I add that file, will it break the other pointer? I have multiple profiles with the same setup (all to the same path, to consolidate them).

Also, is just pulling the kodi dir the same as backup, or is backup grabbing some hidden files, etc? If so, I can do it manually if playing with it may break things.

You don't need the xbmc_env.properties file. That's to tell Kodi that you've moved its entire filetree. Since you opted to move thumbnails manually and adjust via advancedsettings.xml adbLink backup isn't for you. Stick with manual.
