Everything gone



  • Ok got recalbox installed on 2tb flash drive. I had every game you could think of up to the Wii. Perfectly running last night. Shut down like normal. Booted this morning, everything is fine. I haven't moved the drive since plugging it in. There was over 10000 roms from my collection, all gone. Can someone help please

    False, 2Tb isn't enough for all games up to the Wii :p

    So I don't understand too much the problem as you said everything is fine when you booted ?
    I just hope you did a backup of your roms otherwise it is pretty stupid...

    Anyway the issue is likely that Recalbox booted on your SD and not on the HDD. Shutdown properly, connect the HDD to your Windows computer, repair the disk, reconnect it to your Recalbox and then try to restart.



  • Not literally every rom from every system.
    Its installed on the flash drive. I thought maybe a don't was changed for location and changed it, now won't boot. It was booting like normal except no Roms
    I can't really give any more info, I was playing ocarina of time last night. Shut down thru menu.
    The message I get from grub is not enough memory. I think its booting from hdd which no recal install.
    Going to try logging in as root thru terminal.

    @bobby-hancock try what I said if you have a windows and can get your HDD out



  • @voljega I meant gone. If I scan and repair

    1. Will it delete Roms?
    2. Will I Need a reinstall?
    3. What if it is a live image I boot from?

  • Themer

    @bobby-hancock it won't delete anything, just try to repair, but maybe you won't be able to see the right partition to repair anyway if they are all on the same hdd

    if it's fixable, it will correct the problem and you won't need to reinstall
    if not, you will to reinstall
    no worries with live image but what do you mean by live image ?

    you need to try to repair partition 'share', you can also try to do that under command line on linux



  • @voljega I found the Roms, they were saved onto the windows hdd instead of the flash drive. The issue I'm having now is no boot. Saying something about not able to write no space. So since things were saved to the hdd I'm trying to reset with grub but I don't think its possible.
