Hello,
Is there a way to backup the movie library? If not, where is the information stored? I've made quite a few updates to cover art and descriptions and would hate to start over if my system crashed. Thanks!

The movie library data is stored here:

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\CyberLink\PowerDVD21

But remember if you had a hard drive crash, for example, the backing up of this folder would not work if the original media files are not in the exact same folder structure, or no longer on your PC.

Yes, understood about the file structure. In my case, movies are stored on a separate drive.
Thanks for the help. :
