What's Prefix Backup?

It's a plugin which allows you to backup the whole prefix of a game (or a software), the version of Wine used with it (it's defined in "PlayOnLinux -> Tools -> Manage Wine versions"), and the launcher of the program installed in the selected prefix.
It creates a .pol archive that you can reinstall when and where you want via "Install -> Install a .pol package or an unsupported application" in PlayOnLinux.


You can download it here


Backup/Restore the different shortcuts in the system (menu, desktop).
Ask where to save the final .pol archive.
A better disk space handling

Version 0.3 (2009-02-09)
Fixes the bug of the version 0.2.

Version 0.2 (2009-02-09)
Internationalized version (French/English)
Bugged version - All the launchers are backed up
