  • Backing Up Album Thumbnails

    I was wondering if it is necessary to back up album thumbnails. I'm assuming that if I were to move by vB installation to a new server/host and restored the backed up albums (full-size photos), that vB could re-generate the thumbs to go with them at any time? I'm not planning on moving anytime soon but I've been backing up my albums folder since upgrading to 3.7 (I keep album photos in the file system obviously) and wondered if thumbs needed to be backed up, too? Thanks!

    Not really since thumbnails can always be rebuilt.
