Hidden Folders Share/Roms SD Card
If you plug in the SD Card in to the computer I only see a few files with nothing in it.
I want to drag and drop games and files without using WinSCP.
I Used Disk Internals and I can see all the files but unable to drop anything on it.
How can I unhide the all the files?
WinSCP always times out if im transfering big files this is why I want to access the files on the SD.
@bigblockentmt why don't you simply transfert your roms via network ?
I'v tried multiple networks and direct connect. still timeout on big files.
I transfer everything with Filezilla, never a problem. Even sometimes I have multiple connections running.
I am unable to see the Rom Folder
In Filezilla you not only see the rom folder, you see all folders. Means you can also transfer to all allowed locations like /recalbox/share. If I must transfer to a verbidden directory, I just put it by Filezilla into the share folder and transfer inside Putty with cp.
All I see is:
If you put the SD Card in that is all I see
@bigblockentmt you have to leave your sd card into your pi, and then connect it to network via rj45 cable or wifi. Then try what Dragu talked about. Pluging your sd card straight in your pc will achieve nothing
Thanks for the reply back..
Why is it not accessible off the SD?
@bigblockentmt technicly I don't know how, but I know it's like that
Because the folders are mounted under a Linux system. Windows is not able to read such file system.

As the sd card uses a Linux partition, you can probably just install a Windows driver that lets you read and write on such a partition. I haven't tried recalbox yet, but for ext3 or ext4 drives I have used succesfully ext2fsd
Read this : https://www.howtogeek.com/112888/3-ways-to-access-your-linux-partitions-from-windows/
Or just download and install https://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd/files/
Reboot your PC and insert your sd card.
Don't forget to eject your sd card from Windows when you have finished to copy your files.
