hard drive disconnected during LB update!

Recommended Posts

Guys I really need your help! I have hundred of hours setting up my launchbox drive and now it wont open. While installing the newest 9.2 update, my son bumped the hard drive cord and the install failed and did not revert back correctly. Now it will not open at all. Simply doesnt respond. How can I fix this? Do I need to install 9.2 in a fresh folder and paste in some of the files to my existing folder? I do not want to lose any of my hard work! thanks for the help.

Just go into your Launchbox/Updates folder and install the latest version directly over the top of your current install.

Make a copy of your data folder and keep it on a different drive and that way you can't really be in risk of losing your LB setup. Stuff like media for the games and the roms themselves can be easily obtained again (of course if you want to be safe you will back them up also) your countless hours of tinkering can not.
