Sorry, you can't do it. The only way to back up your data is to perform a complete back up using an external hard drive, formatted to FAT32, using the Backup Utility.

I don't know if this helps but when I upgraded my HDD I put all my stuff (game saves and the really funny "pew pew" kevin butler video) on a SD then just uploaded it to my new HDD. I have the sku with the memory ports on the front.

Like the Captain said you can't do that. I just wanted to point out you wouldn't lose anything anyway if your HDD dies. You can redownload all your paid for content (except videos) by logging in with the purchasing account.

I don't exactly understand, how would you lose $150 worth of stuff, everything game related bought on the store can be redownloaded at anytime?
