Create a Backup on Kodi

The Backup addon in Kodi is a program complement where we can make a backup of our Kodi configuration. This is an extremely useful feature, as it allows users to quickly restore their Kodi configuration if they encounter any problems with their setup.

That is, we can keep the same configuration in case we have to reinstall Kodi because of an error or if we want to transfer the same configuration to another device. Keeping the same configuration allows us to have our setup and settings restored quickly, meaning less time spent having to reconfigure Kodi from scratch.

This method works on different systems, so you could back up on Windows and then restore on Android. This is very useful for those who use Kodi on multiple devices, as it allows them to quickly transfer their configuration from one device to another with little effort.

This addon is a great solution for those who are running Kodi 18 or 19, as it supports all platforms, including Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android.

Note: As Kodi users, we recommend the use of a VPN to have full access to all addons, including torrents.
