Update your controller file here:
/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads/{controller-file.cfg}

The SFC30 doesnt create the correct buttons, so change them to the correct ones – this is shown in the video on the Wiki.

Or just use the codes shown here:
https://github.com/libretro/retroarch-joypad-autoconfig/blob/master/udev/8Bitdo-SFC30-GamePad-Bluetooth-Mode(START%2BR).cfg

In terms of the file being overwritten – as long as you dont reconfgiure your controller each time it should be fine. Just update the file as above, save it (maybe open it up and make sure changes are in there) and remove any controller files you dont need including the .bak. Then when you reboot it should go straight into ES – does it ask you to reconfigure the joypad? Do you update it via SSH?
