The GeminiBackup plugin creates an 1:1 backup of your dreambox. In case of problems it's possible to flash the backup over the rescue loader at any moment. GeminiBackup supports only dreamboxes with Dreambox OS. Please make sure you understand the settings before starting a backup.

The following table describes the different settings of the GeminiBackup plugin. Change the settings before starting the backup.
|Directory for the files:||Standard the directory |
|Name||Changes the file name of the backup.|
|Factory reset||Be careful with this setting. If enabled, on, the settings need to be set after flashing the backup. If disabled, off, the factory reset is not initiated.|
|Compression||Choose the desired compression for the backup. The compression affects the backup speed and file size.|
|Debug||Enable this setting, on, to see detailed information concerning the backup creation.|
|Directory for log file:||Sets the path for the log file, |
The following list gives an indication of the different compressions.
- Busybox xz: very fast (on internal SSD less than 15 seconds - size 275 MB), uncompressed
- xz (fast): same image, 120 seconds, size 76 MB
- xz (best): 180 seconds, size 73 MB
- gz (fast): ca. 30 seconds, size 105 MB
- gz (best): about 2 minutes, size 95 MB
If size doesn't matter, use the first setting for a fast backup. In case your storage capacity is limited, use the fourth setting, the backup is still fast and the size is reduced by +/-60%.
After changing the settings, the backup is started with the green button save. The red button Log file displays the information about the backup on the TV.
|The size of the backup shouldn't exceed ~ 310 MB, because this is the limit to flash over the Rescue Loader. If your backup is larger, please use a different compression.|
