- To backup your scrape you must have root access. For Windows users, using [WinSCP] (https://winscp.net/eng/download.php) can be a huge help.

Create this needed directory :

mkdir /recalbox/share/system/backup_scrape/

Use the following command to backup your scrape directories to the share partition.

cp -r /root/.emulationstation/downloaded_images /recalbox/share/system/backup_scrape/ && cp -r /root/.emulationstation/gamelists /recalbox/share/system/backup_scrape/

Depending of the total amount of scrapes you have collected can delay the appearance that the backups completed. Please be patient.

Next go to the 'backup_scrape' directory in system then copy the contents of the 'backup_scrape' to your PC or local storage.



- To restore this backup on your recalbox's system, add your backup in the 'backup_scrape' directory in the system folder then use the following command.

cp -r /recalbox/share/system/backup_scrape/downloaded_images /root/.emulationstation/ && cp -r /recalbox/share/system/backup_scrape/gamelists /root/.emulationstation/

Once the copy is done, reboot your recalbox, and your scrapes will appear.
