There are lots of options for you to backup Kodi watched status on your media. Most of them work online, with a service on the cloud, where you can upload this information automatically via a Kodi addon. The Kodi MyEpisodeCalendar addon is no exception, and works via the online MyEpisodeCalendar service. This service is focused on TV shows, so you might not be able to use it if you want to backup watched media status for movies. In this case, you might be better off installing the Kodi Trakt Addon.
