I need full write support so i login with root using the pi’s IP address along with login/password. If you want root, you’ll have to enable it and edit sshd_config to allow root. https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/FAQ#why-cant-i-ssh-as-root-anymore I don’t use samba or network shares so I’m not sure about that.
