Hey guys,

 

I have a question what is the correct way to restore from "People backup and restore".

I used "Backup/Restore People and Artist Metadata from named person folder structure (Legacy Emby Style)", copied the folders to another Emby-Server and clicked on full restore. In the logs i can see the restore process is running without errors. If I look into the movies the actors still have now pictures or data. What else is to do that a full restore is successfull?

@paddy75 in general that's the way to go. Have you verified that images and people.xml files exist in your backup?

yes, they are in the backup folders. Only images are not present from time to time when there is no in the movie database or tvdb.

Next question is what exactly is happen when the task "people backup" is running. I think normaly a incremental backup is running. I changed some people but when the task runs, this people was not included in the backup. Only when i run a full backup the backup-folder got the new content.

Incremental backup was the plan and i'm sure this was working already. So either Emby or myself broke this functionality. I will look into it.
