Autosave & Autobackup

By: Yirkha

Allows periodic automatic saving of configuration and other data in foobar2000 and keeping backup copies of such data.

The save operation itself does the same as (hidden) command "File > Save Configuration", that means it saves configuration (the whole configuration subfolder), Media library database (database.*), playlists and any additional data managed by other components (for example current theme or playback statistics).

A little time after startup and each time after configuration is autosaved, a backup of the changed files is also created, as a ZIP archive.

See the discussion thread for more information, like configuration options, implementation details and detailed change log.

Current version: 10, released on 2010-09-23

Change log:

  • Added "index-data" to the default backup file list (used e.g. by Playback Statistics v3.0+) - if you are upgrading from a previous version and changed the default pattern, you ought to do this manually.

Supported processor architecture: x86 32-bit.

Works with foobar2000 v1.1 and newer
