Backup addon - fails at Restore

  • I have updated a generic miniPC box (i5-4200U, 4 GB RAM) running LibreElec. After updating to LibreElec 9.95.4 (Generic X86_64) reinstalled the Backup add-in (robweber v. 1.6.7) and remapped to my local NAS. Running Backup works fine; a backup file is created on the NAS (700MB file). However, when I do a Restore there is an error, and I get the message: "Backup Error, check the log for more information".

    I found the log, and the only part that seems to be related to this error is:

    2021-06-26 17:35:49.578 T:1643 ERROR <general>: EXCEPTION Thrown (PythonToCppException) : -->Python callback/script returned the following error<--

    Any thoughts on what is going wrong?

  • Many years ago I stopped using the robweber Backup addon in Kodi because of what you say. The backup/restore of the LibreELEC team has no problem and always works very well, you don't need any other.
