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.
