    hi, i had an idea, of a back up feature to a cloud storage client of your choice, ideally the back up would be of es_systems.cfg & es_input.cfg, retroarch.cfg & other config files, gamelist.xml’s and any other customisable files, maybe backup for custom themes too, also maybe warnings too before upgrading certain packages, that will effect the customised files, maybe too an auto backup before any upgrade, but that option could be turned on/off too



    +1 for the backup option (especially in dropbox etc) . We will gain lot of time!
