I have created a Custom Backup plugin that allows a specified directory to be backed up when you do a backup.
I created this as I have a custom soundtrack directory containing playlists and album covers that I get backed up whenever I do a backup, to a zip file.

After install you will see a new menu item 'specise_8472/backup'.
Click on this and you will be presented with a dialog to enter a folder path to backup. (no trailing slash!)
Now when you do a backup this directory will be backed up to a zip file with the same name as the backup file.zip. and in the same place as the backup.
If you do not enter a path you will get a message that no custom path provided. If provided you will get a success message. This runs automatically after the main backup has finished.

The filepath is stored in a Backup.ini file that is created in the same directory as the plugin.

If you are doing a lot of 'partial' backups and this is annoying, then just open backup again and save with no path specified. This will put a blank entry in the ini file.
At any time you can change the path by entering a new path which will overwrite the existing path.

File can be found at    https://1drv.ms/f/s!AszUwF4_399MmjUaCSUi87shgGZ-
There is an installer .exe which registers it after install and the raw .dll for users who prefer more control.

To do,
Multiple directory's if a need for this.
Restore back on system restore

There is also a tool that can backup the DVD Profiler collection to an SQLite database: https://drive.google.com/file/d/13LcdY-ZOTSFARn6z8LCqAaukrrDgInlr/

Note that it needs the SQLite library which seems not to be included, but can be downloaded here: https://sqlite.org/download.html (one needs the 32-bit DLL)

Thanks, but this is to allow backup of other dirs when doing an internal backup.
Not for backing up the main DB as it does a good job on its own.

Used by me for backing up a music dir that has HTML and pics in.

I believe that just about anything you put into certain folders is backed up automatically along with the database:

- ScenePhotos
- CreditPhotos
- Filters
- Labels
- Flags

I am not sure what if any restrictions exist for filetypes and size. If anyone knows, please share info. But I think you could just add a folder(s) for your HTML and pics.
Thanks for your support.
