How Often Do You Delete and Re-Install Home:

71 replies 410 views Edited Dec 26, 2013

Merry Christmas Everyone!

 

Just like the title states. I'm curious to know what folks thoughts are on the subject.

 

I personally delete and re-install Home once a week and also before downloading any new updates.

 

Knock on wood! I haven't had any real issues other than some of the error codes we get.

 

Given that everyone's set-up and situation is different. What are your thoughts on the effectiveness of the delete  and re-install action.

 

Have a Great Day Everyone.

Thank you for any replies.:womanhappy:

In the last three weeks, maybe four or five times.....:smileymad: Other than that, maybe every other month. I usually clear cache first to see if that helps before doing a reinstall.

Once a month at least, but also any time there is a update that requires downloading a patch.

That routine seem to work out best for you?

Not very often. Home seems to work fine for me most of the time.

I'm not a big fan of overwriting updates. I rather start out fresh.:womanhappy:

I used to do it regularly around 2 years ago. Especially when I started region hopping.

Last year was more or less eventless so I dont remember deleting home for a looong time.

Last couple weks... well.... 2 or 3 times.

I often do a file restore between the delete and re-install. Make sure I start in the better conditions possible. Using the PS3 browser seems to mess up the HDD even more than home was when the disconnections/freeze was frequent.

Not always....LOL. Sometimes it's just Home itself and nothing works. Ever since the recent outage, Home doesn't seem to be running as smooth as it did prior, at least for me anyway.

 

I purchased three new spaces that I never got to decorate for Christmas...:smileysad: Sitting there and watching three dots loading isn't my idea of a good time.
