You will need a USB storage device, such as a memory stick or external hard drive, to create your backup. This will need enough free space to hold everything you want to copy.
- USB hard drives need to be formatted using the FAT32 system for the PS3 to recognise them
Using the Backup Utility:
- Connect your USB storage device to the PS3
- Turn on the PS3
- Navigate to the Settings menu and select System Settings
- Choose Backup Utility
- Select Back Up
The system will then copy the data to your storage device.
Restoring your backed-up data:
- Using the steps above, navigate to the Backup Utility menu
- Select Restore
Your data will now be copied from the storage device to your PS3.
Always refer to the manufacturer’s manual for specific details.
