[SOLVED!] 8TB drive detected as 5TB drive when updating (due to missing roms)

Post by Memotech1982 on Tue Jan 02, 2018 2:57 pm

Hello All,

When I run Syncovery updates, my drive is being detected as 5TB and not the 8TB package I purchased. Is there a file that should be moved or deleted?
Also, is there a batch file that auto maps all the systems to their emulators and roms? Some systems aren't mapped to their required path for emulator and roms.
Thanks for your help Team!

giovanni527- is your 16 being detected as an 8tb? If so, there is some info on the forums here on how to correct that. Let me know and I may be able to point you in the right direction. It’s just moving a few folders around on the second 8tb drive.

Menotech... there were instructions on the download about how to extract the files and where to put them. You do NOT have the files in the right places -or- you didn’t download all the roms.

There’s no batch file, go back to your download instructions and see where it tells you to extract each file to.

Also, you can go into dos and do this:

D:

That should put you in the D drive. Now type:

dir /s /b /o:n /a:d > folderlist.txt

That’ll take a few min and then say complete. Type exit to exit dos window.

Now, in your D drive main root folder that should have created a file called folderlist.txt

Paste that here.

Hello James,

First of all, thanks for your help. We had a power outage this morning that killed the sh!te out of my drive, wont boot up. I do have another drive that I purchased during the holidays for the 16TB package upgrade. Screw it Ill stick with the 8TB package for now. Ill reach out to Chris for the 8TB download package. What a pain. Thanks again.

Also I just created this to show how your drives should look so they detect properly

Marking this solved.
