Nvidia Shield TV Experience 7.0 and Plex USB storage

When reading the following ...

PLEX Media Server Expands Storage Options
Your server’s app data (metadata, background art, and more) can now be moved to USB storage devices. From the PLEX app, go to Settings > Plex Media Server > Storage Location.

Does that mean stuff like WATCH states and so on are no stored on the USB drive ?
Why I am asking this is, I would like to factory reset my nvidia shield but I don't want to lose my watch status inside PMS.
I don't mind rebuilding the libraries, it's just the WATCH STATE would be horrible to restore manual by hand.

    Having had done this myself, the way I did it was to log into the web application then:

    1. Sort your library by in list view.
    2. Select all.
    3. Mark as watched.
    4. And go back using the control + mouse click select to select multiple titles,
    5. With those titles highlighted mark them as unwatched.

    But as far as backing up the database, I haven't figured that one out yet. If being able to backup and restore the database that would save the trouble I have outlined above.
