I screwed up. Updated retropie on root not pi.
@MosaicDragon Have you read the page I posted ?
@mitu I did read it and I got the bios and Ron's folder, I'm unsure which else to get hence asking for a list- please remember I haven't done anything on linux/raspberry pi in quite a long time before now
@MosaicDragon Quoting the doc page:
if you don't want to create a sd image you can just back up your bios, roms, and configuration files from the samba shares.
Thus saying backup bios and Rom and Config files is all very well but when I put a search in for config files I get rather too many results to know which I do and do not need.
I'm asking for specifics-where in each directory are the important bits found?
I did read it... There's an awful lot of files for me to chose from... see here...
Your screenshot shows a WinSCP session - this is not what is advised or shown in the doc link I posted. Are you not able to use File Shares on your PI ?
@mitu can't seem to get it working... Either my pi doesn't like it or Windows is screwed up. Hence my issue here.

Then you should have said it from the beginning. The folders shown via File Shares are as follows:
- roms -
- bios -
- configs -
- splashscreens -
- roms -
@mitu Thanks! Stupid me got confused. Thought winscp was same as shares somehow... Duh. Now to wait to backup 200gb of roms as I swear if I lose them... That would be frustrating

@mitu sorry to bother you... Again. What should I do given I have just noticed lack of the configs folder?
@MosaicDragon Which folder are you checking for the
configs? It's /opt/retropie/configs.
@mitu I think ive done something... i managed to get into the retropie setup screen and ima try fix my system, ill let you know if i have any luck
@mitu Thats where i looked, its gone-vanished of the face of the earth, hope the setup script fixes it
