Playstation Plus Online Saves

14 replies 210 views Edited Feb 3, 2013

So I've had playstation+ for a while now, and recently upgraded my hard drive.  Before I did so, I moved all of my saves I wanted to keep to my online save folder.  Now that I've got the new hard drive in, I can't figure out how to locate the saves that I had copied to the online folder.  Any one know how to get these back?

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

If you have PS Plus can't you just go to your PS Plus saves & use them?

They're not there. When I go to the ps+ saves, there are no save files in the folder.

You're still a current Plus Subscriber & logged in with the same PSN ID & PASSWORD you always used?

I'm not too sure, but I coudld've sworn I read people mentioning it takes 24 hours for your saves to show up in that folder after they've been added to it, or something along those lines.

Ahhh, I do know there's a 24 hour wait period before being able to use them on another PS3 say, but the same may apply here too, good thinking Fidelity, you may be onto something here.

If you're worried about it, manually back them up to your plus saves folder and copy what you can to a usb drive. I haven't replaced my hdd since going to plus, so not sure about having to wait for the folder to populate.
