How can I migrate my DoggCatcher configuration from one device to another with the SD card when my device uses the internal storage?

When applications ask a device for the location to the external storage (where we want to place the backup), some devices respond with the location of the internal storage. In this case, DoggCatcher will perform backups/restores from the internal storage. This is not useful when you want to migrate your configuration from one device to another.

Here are the steps to use DoggCatcher's backup/restore to migrate your configuration from one device to another using the SD card.

-In the DoggCatcher menu, press on Backup/Restore
-Press on the backup button, then press yes
-Notice the backup location displayed on the backup/restore screen.
-Use a file manager to move the Export folder from the backup location to your SD card.
-Move the SD card to the new device
-In the DoggCatcher menu, press on Backup/Restore
-Notice the backup location displayed on the backup/restore screen.
-Use a file manager to move the Export folder from your SD card to the location displayed.
-Do a restore

I expect this will restore all my podcast subscriptions and settings...but, will it restore my cued podcasts? For example, I have 20 subscriptions and most have only the most current episode cued to listen to, but several have 4 or 5 and one or two have 8 that I have to catch up on (and I do on weeks that I travel).
What I am dreading is having to just restore and manually force the download of the last 10 episodes of all my subscriptions and then going through and deleting the ones I've heard.

Am I over complicating things? I am just trying to upgrade my device by transferring my 32gb card (from old device to new).

Thanks for any input.
