To be more specific, the backup file contained the thumbnails, but I do not see the thumbnails in XBMC post-restore. Any idea if this is normal, or if there is anything I can do to get them back. What's strange is that 1.6GB is now used on the SD card which would seem to indicate the files got transfered over.
Thanks for your help! This is way better than it was before.

Cached thumbnails will have their information stored in the texture database file. The file contains the paths to the cached thumbnails. Since the absolute paths to the cached thumbnails would be different between a windows box and a linux distro I doubt its possible to just copy things over and have the texture/thumbnail cache to work without editing database to fix the paths. With just copying things over the files will exist in the cache directory but the texture db would be pointing to a directory that doesn't exist on the linux box, so I don't think it will see the cached images. I would think that best thing to do would be to clean up the cache directory, do a library cleanup, then have it rescan the library to redownload artwork.
