I really hate FAT32... i formatted to EXT4 and
Edit /etc/rc.local

remove ,umask=0000,uid=pi,gid=pi
from sudo mount /dev/sda1 /home/pi/RetroPie -o rw,user,exec,umask=0000,uid=pi,gid=pi

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /home/pi/RetroPie -o rw,user,exec
sudo chown pi:pi /home/pi/RetroPie
chmod 777 /home/pi/RetroPie

it works... but can i have problems in future?

not really, FAT32 is only recommended as an universal solution, so Windows users can populate their roms easily.
EXT4 is native , even better

- download http://retrorangepi.download/retropie_folder.tar.gz or http://www.retrorangepi.org/retrostone_folder.tar.gz (RetroStone only)
- extract contents of tarball (roms, BIOS, music, splashscreens and retropiemenu folders) to the root of the drive
- populate roms folders
- power on the board with usb drive inserted

NOTE: roms will play from USB, there will no copying from USB to sdcard or emmc

i downloaded the file http://retrorangepi.download/retropie_folder.tar.gz
when i was populating the rom folder i noticed that was missing the amiga folder.
So i compared the content of retropie_folder with the original retropie folder... and i found that the amiga folder is not the only thing missing.
So is safe to copy roms, BIOS, music, splashscreens and retropiemenu folders to the usb storage instead using http://retrorangepi.download/retropie_folder.tar.gz ?

amiga folder is not there because it's not supported in slim release]
so yes, you just need to have roms, BIOS, music, splashscreens and retropiemenu in the root of the drive to work things out
