how do i back up download games on the ps3?

4 replies 4743 views Edited Jun 14, 2013

my 320 GB is full with games, save data, movies, music, videos, ect. I want to replace it with a 1TB drive, how do i go to transfer all my data in the 320GB drive into the 1TB drive? I only have 1 ps3, so i cant do the data transfer to another ps3. I just want to back up everything, then instal the 1TB drive and re-install all data into that drive.

Here's the info on how to backup the data that's currently on your PS3. You'll need an external hard drive to accomplish that though.

you'll need an external hard drive formatted FAT32. One with it's own power supply would be best. Then run the back up utility. Then restore after installing the new HDD.

will it back up full ps3 download games? Because those are like 10GB each and i have like 20 of them, dont want to redownload all of them, will take weeks. And my ISP is limited to 250GB a month.

Last i knew, yes. All games will be backed up. However, AFAIK messages, playlists, and such will be lost.
