Replace 'playlist' in the configuration by 'playlist*' and it will also save the playlists in the future.

Thank you! I suspected my config was not up to date but was too lazy to skim this thread. Cunningham's Law to the rescue!

Installed, pressed 'Save configuration', nothing happened.
Tried to change paths, etc, no success.
And no log to trace further. :(

What are you expecting? Save configuration only saves the one configuration to disk. It doesn't magically let you pick another configuration to save to.

I looked for a intuitive, easy way to make sure the addon was able to work as expected.
Eight pages of discussion and nobody asked for an obvious BACKUP NOW menu item? Damn…

That menu option isn't provided by the component, it's provided by the player. It has no visible result, other than maybe disk activity, if you somehow log or notice it.

The component actually working should result in periodic backups of this configuration when the configuration is saved, or on track changes, or on other triggers I can't think of right now. It has no visible indicator, because it's supposed to be automatic and silent.

You can find the backups, though. That's a sure fire way to make sure it's working.

Has there been any followup to this post?

I have a suggestion:
- make an option to save after the foobar window has been inactive for x seconds.
Because saving freezes the ui, I want it to be done only if the window is in background and I am currently not using the ui.

After troubleshooting my UI layout, I'm thinking that foo_jesus is the cause of my entire foobar2000 application and UI to become frozen every X tracks (lining up with a backup every X tracks).  Can something be done to make this asynchronous / not deny access to the UI / item properties / playlist views / etc.?  Unfortunately I am planning to uninstall this component in the meantime, as it is very frustrating to not be able to open the item properties to work on tags at the beginning of playback every X tracks.

This only saves the configuration, not what was playing, right?

So if there's a crash or power loss, it won't restore what was playing before the crash, it will only start playing once again after the last time there was a graceful shutdown?

Is there a way to exclude a specific subfolder (or file) of the chosen paths to back up?

For example:
Save everything under user-components, except the folder of a component that happens to be quite large.

Thank you.

Is this component getting an update for v2.0?

I'm also interested in an update of this component. I use v2 x64 beta.

@Yirkha has not been active in 11 years, and it was never open sourced. I'm thinking the answer is no. :D

It remains to be seen how much it's still needed though. index-data is no longer lost on crash because it's written to the sqlite database as it goes. The only other thing that's a real issue then is when playlists are saved. If those happen when changes are made (and not just program close), then the only thing this component gets you is backups if you accidentally screw up something in your theme.

Hi, @MordredKLB . I wonder if you, or anyone else, could please help me with this: Could .dll (and related, such as .lua), .dll.cfg & .conf files become corrupt when the program crashes? I've been using this component to periodically save those file types (along with .fth and my playlists).

Thank you.
