backuping up  .dpb to a separate HD..  takes 15 odd minutes .. Ive been trying for over 4 hours  3 times to restore this to back to profiler  within windows 10 ..  after 20 min  not responding .. resorted to  backup from cloud that worked .. But have a number of custom covers that the cloud does not t recognize with its own individual UPC ..    problem here is the restore from .dpb ..

question would it better to drag and drop  and if so exactly what folders  ( or all ) ,??

and or  when you do restore should you use restore All  or restore specific with all boxes ticked..
see example :

First of all, I'd be a little concerned if it took 15 minutes to back up 2300 profiles (unless you have several gigabytes of cover art or are backing up to "the cloud".)  It usually takes me about four minutes to back up 3800 profiles to a USB flash drive.

Is your backup on a local drive?  If not, I think I'd copy the backup file to a local drive and try the restore from there.  I'd probably also do a database repair on what you have before trying to restore from your backup.  I always select "Restore All Profiles" when I do a database restore, but it depends on what you're trying to do.

I'm running DVD Profiler on Windows 10 Pro and find that the few problems I did have went away when I began running it "As Administrator".

Stopwatch 2:32 from/to SSD with a fistful of profiles.

JFTR, because I never use the slow backup function. Instead a database folder sync takes only 3 seconds.

You must have a lot of very large image files in your database.  I have about 3800 profiles and my backup file is a little over 1.5 GB.

... or many gallery images. In my collection I have ten screencaptures from movies for each profile, so backup files are rather big...

backing up the .dpb to a stick or to a hard drive is ''never the problem''  it is the restoring of that file which is the problem to windows 10  but not  windows XP ... which is my main library between four devices ..


1. My windows XP / / 2. windows 10 ( sitting empty  unless I download from cloud )  //
3.windows 10 laptop just from cloud only..  // 4 . and my iphone 5s  cloud only ..

Are you running DVD Profiler as administrator?  If not, give that a try.

Hold down CTL or ALT when you start Profiler. Pop-up will allow you to select not to load the plugins.
