I updated from vn 4.0 RC4 to vn 4.1 RC1 and I restored my backup created by vn 4.0 RC4 and noticed that the system time zone and dashboard language were not restored. Are these items not being backed up? Other than that the new VN 4.1 RC1 works fine here on my jumbospot on a RPI 3B+ board.
They are not - neither is the system password, that is just in case I make some "dramatic" dashboard change between versions, you can re-set them when you first login.

Some settings are not backed up, so if you changed them to something other than the default, you'll find that they are back on the default settings of a new install, for example:
  • General Configuration – Dashboard language (default English_uk)
  • D-Star Configuration – Time Announcements (default: On) and Use DPlus for XRF (default: Off). If you change the Use DPlus for XRF setting, you must run a Pi-Star Update to put the new setting into effect.
  • Firewall Configuration – Auto AP (default: On)
  • Remote Access Password – Since Pi-Star backup does not back up this password, if you want to use your own password, which is a good idea, you'll need to enter your own password.

No need for an oops - yours is a better answer than mine :)

Thanks to both of you for the response.

Thomas, W2XQ, just reminded me that there's another thing that isn't backed up, which is any custom CSS settings you create using the CSS Tool in the Expert Editor. If you change CSS settings, you'll need to write them down so you can manually restore them.

Backuo of CCS is a big one for me. I run a different Hotspot for each mode and monitor each dashboard on a big screen. I have memorized the color combination for each mode. Really would not want to reinvent the wheel every time I burn a new image.

The CCS background colour setting is easy to figure out, the web authoring colour tables/charts are shown on several web sites, such as:

I use green on my Pi Zero W and blue on my Pi 3B...

The latest firmware updates have improved the Pi 4 quite a bit to where if you have a good case and heat sinks you should be alright. Notice that you can reduce the temperature by 2C by just changing its orientation. It would be nice to see the orientation trick get adopted by case designs with proper venting as too many of the hotspot cases lack proper venting.
