Settings that are being kept are: All your satellite and bouquet settings, Cccam/Oscam settings, network settings, well almost everything settings.

No plugins are being restored.

Beware: This tool can only be used when there is no major upgrade has been done in Enigma.. E.g. OpenPLi 4 backup. Restore with OpenPLi 5.
