Importance of backups

It’s important to keep your OSMC system backed up. This will make it easy to upgrade your OSMC device, move settings to another system and ensure peace of mind

Backing up via My OSMC

OSMC offers its own backup utility to help you make backups. It can be accessed via My OSMC. If you are using the default OSMC skin, then My OSMC will be accessible via your Home screen. If you are using Confluence then it will be available via the Settings sub-menu. For other skins, My OSMC can be found via the Programs section.

Setting up a backup schedule

Under My OSMC’s backup wizard, you can also configure a backup schedule. OSMC recommends you perform a backup before an update is installed.
