    I was wondering if someone could tell me which directories I should copy from my 3.0rc1 setup to a new 3.0Final setup to be able to keep all of my settings for the emus and games?

    I really don’t want to have to go and set up every system again if I don’t have to.

    Normally, you should just be able to upgrade using the Retropie-Setup script. However, for myself, I’m planning on doing a quick re-install to start from a black sheet.

    A couple of thing to backup :
    – ROMS : “\home\retropie\ROMS” . Regular saves and Savestates are in these folders
    – Scraper : If you have used the scraper of EmulationStation, this information is stored in the “\home\pi\.emulationstation\”. Two directories “gamelists” “downloaded_images”
    – RetroArch.cfg : “\opt\retropie\configs\all\”

    You are loosing some settings (specific configs per ROM/Emulators)
