PS Vita Plus Online Storage - Automatic?

4 replies 1908 views Edited Nov 21, 2012
Hello everyone. I have Plus and updated my Vita to the latest firmware. Content Manager is where you choose to upload game saves to Online Storage, but can you make these uploads automatic like you can with the PS3? Or do you have to manually choose to upload game saves from the Vita to Online Storage each time?

I noticed that under Copy Saved Data you can choose PS Vita to Online Storage and there is an info icon you can click which gives you an option to upload automatically. Not sure what exactly that does.

Just trying to figure out if this works just like the PS3 does and game saves will automatically go to Online Storage.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

Yes.  It works basically the same way as the corresponding feature on the PS3.

Thanks for the response gkpama00. I tested it to last night see what would happen and it appears it did work. Just not sure how to set the time of day when the upload to Online Storage takes place. Any ideas?

There is no time-of-day setting. The save data is uploaded to online storage immediately when the save data is updated, if you have connectivity to PSN.  It's not a daily batch upload. I'm not sure what happens if you don't have connectivity, but I would expect that it would upload the files the next time you sign in to PSN.
