PROBLEM - ROMS self deleted on ROPI 4 - unrw@mail.ru - 03-13-2018

I have 2 devices Orange PI PC and 2 sd cards 8G and 64G

I have dowloaded and installed ROPI 4 from retrorangepi.org

ROMS copied to empty folders, after rebooting devices roms folders are empty (only 1 file exits 0 bytes) on both devices.

I have fully formated sd cards and reinstall ROPI again and copied roms to folders but afer rebooting devices folders again empty (only 1 file exits 0 bytes) and no games available from GUI

What is wrong with ROPI 4 for Orange pi PC ?
Why roms are deleted every time ?

Nothing wrong with orange pi pc image, check sdcard reliability

really, it does not happen here. i've been trying this for months.

Double check your steps, reflash your image

send the output of the command 'dmesg' maybe there is a file corruption somewhere, or power issues.

I suggest you to try an alternative like Filezilla , connecting to your IP 192.168.x.x, port 22, user pi, password pi.

We just cannot reproduce this bug and cannot help any further.
