       gpodder-backup - Backup and restore utility for gPodder user data


       gpodder-backup   [--create|--extract]   <archive.gpo.tar.gz>  [options]
       gpodder-backup --purge


       This utility can be used to create a dump of the current  gPodder  data
       (configuration   files  +  downloads),  optionally  skipping  the  real
       contents of the download folder (for submitting  your  data  to  a  bug
       report without having to transfer lots of data).


              show program’s version number and exit

       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit

       -c <FILE>, --create=<FILE>
              Create a new archive

       -x <FILE>, --extract=<FILE>
              Extract an existing archive

       -f, --fake-downloads
              Do not store contents of downloaded files

       -n, --no-covers
              Do not include cover files in archive

       -D <DIR>, --destination=<DIR>
              Extract downloads in different folder

       -P, --purge
              Remove current data (can be combined with --extract)


       This command is useful if you want to report a bug in gPodder:

       gpodder-backup --create bug123.gpo.tar.gz --fake-downloads
              Backup  your  current  data to file bug123.gpo.tar.gz, but don’t
              store download data (create zero-size dummy files instead).  You
              can then attach bug123.gpo.tar.gz to the bug report.

       If  you are instructed to try gPodder from a "clean state", you can use
       the following command (be sure to backup your data before!):

       gpodder-backup --purge
              Remove all gPodder data, so you can start from a clean state


       gpodder-backup --create today.gpo.tar.gz
              Backup your current data to file today.gpo.tar.gz

       gpodder-backup --extract mybackup.gpo.tar.gz
              Restore (without purging) the contents of mybackup.gpo.tar.gz

       gpodder-backup --extract default.gpo.tar.gz --purge
              Remove    current   data,   then   restore   the   contents   of

       gpodder-backup --purge
              Remove all gPodder data, so you can start from a clean state
