You should include that in the retrox app. I would love to be able to remove saves in the app. Be nice if the file names were clearer on some. But I can figure most out.

Its still happens..on every device, on every start, on every game.

here is a video .. drives me mad.. makes the app almost unuseable.

I deleted all my saves after logging in to the website. Well, everything except the psp ones which seem to be in a separate folder. Now it loads quick again. Sadly, the save system must be quite fragile for this to happen.

From what I found, the corrupted files where empty files. That may be because

a) The emulator created those buggy files or
b) Your device ran out of storage or
c) The files were lost in the server

but... I have no other reports that I'm aware of people having that same problem, so I don't think that is the last case. Unless there are people with that problem that haven't reported it to me.

Well the post directly above me by drhoemmal shows he's having the same trouble. Thinking about it, my issue could have been due to low or zero storage and I've now fixed it.

It's good to know that about your storage.

May be I should just skip zero byte files to be uploaded, so they don't appear as corrupted. What do you think?

Just loaded up retrox on my phone. Everytime I start retrox it is downloading and uploading all my saves. This takes several minutes Utes. This can't be the way it is supposed to work. I have the same account setup on my shield. I don't have these problems.

well after about 4 times of this happening it just stopped. Maybe the download was having an issue and kept trying until it got it right. I'm still not sure what happened. The dev contacted me and is looking into it. But for right now it is working as intended.
