you have to format your SSD disk in exfat format. Plug it to your Pi, load Recalbox and choose your SSD drive (give it a name) in the menu.
RCB will reboot and create all required folders on your SSD.
So I did that and recalbox found it with no issues but the issue remained.
I decided to check the drive one more time and I discovered that the file system somehow duplicated itself.
This is what my drive had on it for example:
But it also had a roms folder as well and that looked like this:
My files were all in the first set except for one system. After I moved the files all to share—>roms—>system name, the game list was finally updated correctly.
I’m not sure what happened to cause the issue but it may have been caused by me originally formatting the drive without a drive letter and then after I had installed it I removed it and hooked it up back to my computer but this time I assigned a drive letter to it. I then reinstalled it in the pi and selected the newly named drive.
@jerome38000 I have no way to test it, but, no other user has reported any problems like that, you are probably using a poor quality USB Disk, with low read/write speed (but I'm not sure).
Perhaps the formatting of the USB Disk can also influence.
Y have 1Tb external HDD with 3 partitions to test in parallel Batocera, Recalbox and Retropie, this 3 partitions are equally divided in NTFS format each one and identical romset in each one. First partition is labeled BSHARE (dedicated to Batocera), second partition is labeled RSHARE (dedicated to Recalbox) and third partition is labeled PSHARE (dedicated to Retropie). And three microSD cards with this 3 different systems. In the menu of each system is possible to select the corresponding partition to use by each system (but Retropie is a little more complex). So, your idea it's perfectly possible.
Ok I found the solution I post it here if anyone needs it in the future :
It's all my bad the Names where not in lowercase, and even if the uppercase does work without external datastorage it doesn't when using an USB Storage.
I don't need someone to send me a link to youtube on how to create this from scratch..
It is very convenient for you to point out that you DO NOT WANT to do the only thing YOU NEED TO DO to get forum support, but ... You at least are able to understand that you are automatically denying support, so there is no need to pollute the forum with same question?

If you don't want to be banned permanently, never suggest it again.
I'm sure I was objective enough, and I'm sure your question has already been answered, the fact that you don't want to do what is necessary, does not invalidate the answer. The fact that you do SPAM, even though you know you're wrong, and having already been warned, only reinforces the idea that it is necessary to ban you.
Obviously I will lock this topic, but I will not ban you YET, please do not SPAM by opening another topic on this same subject, I will not give you one more chance on this: if you do not install the latest official version of the system, you don't have to open a new topic, and if you do, you will be banned.
@robmcc83 for HDD or SSD format it in exfat format. Then setup recalbox to use external drives, and it will setup the structure.
The advantage of this is that you can upload all rooms, bios, configs, straight from windows.
Thanks to all the thread I was able to do it
My machine is a laptop and was connected to a second screen via display port
So I have not modified the .xinicrt since I didn't find it but I manually ran the following
DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --listmonitors
Then I had two connected monitors
So I did DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output eDP1 --off
And the laptop screen went black
After that I did DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output DP-1 primary
And then I clicked escape on the laptop and I was back in the main screen displayed on the tv
Thank you so much for your investigation and output
