Each day when I turn on my PS3 whether I had a game update or not, I have several files shown that give me an error upon attempting to install them. The image of the file is a grayish looking folder with an image of a folder in it. I had 3 different ones this morning but the only 2 I remember are Little Big Planet 2 and Wipeout HD. It seems to be a leftover file that is not deleting. When I attempt to install it, the progress hits 100% and then I get an error message. I don't currently remember the error number but I do remember when I looked it up that it didn't really pertain to what I was doing. I will update the post with the error number once I get these files showing again. This didn't start happening until I turned on PS+ Auto Update. I am also seeing said blank files even if I don't get a pop up stating that games were updated. The first day it was different files but the last few days it has been the same 3 files. I have currently turned off game auto update to verify if the files come back so that way I can see if that is definitely what is causing it. If anyone has any ideas as to why this is happening in the meantime I would love to hear them. Otherwise I will update the posting as to whether it happened or not with auto update turned off and then I will update with the error code I get when trying to install the content.
Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.
Edit: Turning off game patches stopped the files from showing. I turned it back on and will see what happens tomorrow.
Will I lose anything?
Read the link. It describes what each option does. Typically with 3 you don't lose anything unless it's corrupted. So if a svae is corrupted and can't be repaired it'll go but iyou won't lose everything on the drive if that's what you're worried about. That's option 5 and is a last resort.
