Ok, I'm not sure this is the right part of the forums to come to about this but anyway... Today I couldn't get on ps home so I tried to delete it but it was taking to long so I shut off my ps3 (which I feel I should not have done.) So next I try to turn on my ps3 and it says harddisk data has been corrupted and it will restore it etc. So the whole day now I've been waiting for the data to restore and all it does is goto 100% after hours of waiting then it tells me I have to restore again and the pattern continues. I fear that my data will never come back I need suggestions on what the problem might be and how I can fix it.
Go into safe mode and select option 4 (restore database) first, then go back into safe mode and select option 3 (restore file system). That should take care of the problem without harming any important data on your HDD.
You should also make backups of your important save data (like your Home avatar and personal space customizations) onto a spare USB thumb drive with Saved Data Utility. That way, you'll rarely find yourself in a situation where your data might be lost forever.
I thought I was the only one with this problem, basically yesterday, I could not find the PsHome icon im my ps3. So I turned it off then on, but I could not find it, and then I went to play one of my games which I downloaded from PsStore and realised that none of them were there, in the folder was saying "21 unknown items" so I pressed X to expand the file, then the file gone
My ps3 was running slowly than normal, then the screen turned all black so I felt forced to turn the ps3 off manually, when I turned it on came a message saying that the ps3 wasnt running correcly and I should get the new version, but I had downloaded it 4 days ago I guess. Anyway then I downloaded the new version from the PC and did all the steps on my Ps3 but I still not finding the Ps Home and my downloaded games. So I tried to restore the system... but it is taking so long, I'm waiting at least five hours more
my ps when i turn on appear a notification that say that it need to restart because its corrupted but when the bar gets 100 percent they restart but when it turn on it appear the same notification...... what do i need to do ?
