Yeah, I read that in another one of your posts. So its not really a backup so much as a temporary shift of data, in preparation for a HD swap on the same unit. It just seems like another FU from Sony to call the operation a "backup".

The funny thing is, on the "Service Pre-Packing Checklist" they include in the shipping box they send you is "Back Up Your Data". I suppose there are instances that Sony sends back the same console when shipping it in for repair, but since I've only had YLODs, I wouldn't know about that.
