"Repairing HDD Cache"

19 replies 1105 views Edited May 9, 2012

Before I start, this isn't a support issue, it's just a question.

I was frozen in the MuiMui Ship space, and upon restarting my system and signing into Home, I was alerted with the message: "A problem has been detected in your HDD cache so we are repairing it.  This problem is normally caused when PlayStation Home is shut down unexpectedly."

Was that added with the newest update?  I've never had that screen pop up, and I've had Home freeze quite a lot.


Yes, I did create that game on the Vita you probably never heard of.

It was added a while ago. I appreciate the repairs.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

Actually........it's not a new occurance. I can say that because it happened to me beginning a while back, like feburary or march, and quite often at times too. Trust me on this one, it's aggravating to say the least. You are right that it's caused by freezing issues, but this recent update had nothing to do with it I'm afraid.

Since you're getting many freezes, go into Safe Mode and use the Restore File System option to check your hard drive for errors. Ignore the warning about corrupted data found. Also, backup your Home settings to a spare USB thumb drive if you don't want to lose your avatar personalizations and personal space decorations if your PS3 or the hard drive were to croak.

Freezes are causes by server issues (or mergers), not HDD issues. Crashing, on the other hand, can be caused by many things.

How do you distinguish between a freeze and a crash? They're the same in my book.

To me, a freeze is when the program locks and forces you to manually reboot the whole system.  A crash is when the program goes down, forcing you to only reboot that program.
