Backup



  • I installed RecalBox on a micro sd card.
    I have uploaded the games that I liked and I downloaded the covers.
    What I can not do is a copy of one card to another, when I do, it seems that I only copy the original installation, all games and covers are lost.
    I have tried with win32disk and with USB Image Tool, but it is impossible.
    Can anybody help me?
    Thank you ,
    A greeting.

  • @Ocellato
    Backup means your personal data that are all under the folder /share on your OS sd-card. You can save this folder on your PC with normal copy tools.
    After, if you want to make a complete physical copy of your sd-card on another, first make an .img file from your original, this file is not readable by you. But after, if you copy the .img file back to your second sd-card, the share folder will be readable again and you should find all your games in it.

    This is my problem. When I copy the .img file in my second sd-card the games and images of games gets lost...

    I have done this 5 times and none is copied well

    Thanks.

    Your second SD-Card must have minimum the same size as your original.
    And you can control under windows if the folder /share is always on your original sd-card. If yes, you did bad manipulation during creating of the image file. If no, the datas disappeared from your original card before, without some bad manipulation also not possible.



  • Hi,
    The target sd-card have more capacity than original sd-card.
    I dont understadn "\share" folder... In my original sd-card, i dont have any "\share" folder , and my original sd-card works correctly before and after creating the image
    Thanks
