 +Say you are running Batocera off a USB pendrive (or SD card) but want to host your ROM files on a different hard drive. In that case, you need to  edit ''/​boot/​batocera-boot.conf''​ and provide the information of the hard drive that hosts your ROMs. In order to do that, you can list the UUID of the drive that hosts the ROMs by typing the ''​blkid''​ command:
 +  ​
 +  /dev/sdb2: LABEL="​SHARE"​ UUID="​12e46ca9-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxx"​ TYPE="​ext4"​
 +  /dev/sdb1: LABEL="​BATOCERA"​ UUID="​zzzz-zzzz"​ TYPE="​vfat"​
 +  /dev/sda1: LABEL="​SHARE"​ UUID="​2efa1068-yyyy-yyyy-yyyy-yyyyyyyyyy"​ TYPE="​ext4"​
 +In that example, ''/​dev/​sdb1''​ is my Batocera boot partition, ''/​dev/​sdb2''​ is the rest of my Batocera USB pendrive (that I don't want to use) and ''/​dev/​sda1''​ if the partition hosting my ROM files. In order to use that partition, I need to edit ''/​boot/​batocera-boot.conf''​ and put:
 +  # device to the share data (userdata)
 +  sharedevice=DEV 2efa1068-yyyy-yyyy-yyyy-yyyyyyyyyy
 +  ​
 +  # disable the splashsound (remove the # to disable sound)
 +  #​splashsound=false
 +  ​
 +  # enable the nvidia driver (remove the # to enable it)
 +  #​nvidia-driver=true
