internal harddrive upgrade backup issues
internal harddrive upgrade backup issues –
Ive recently bought a 320 gb hard drive to replace my old 60 gb hard drive, im on kmeaw kfw, my questions are: how do i backup trophies, seeing as i obviously have no access to psn, secondly i legally purchaced 'the god of war collection' of psn, this consists of god of war one and two, both 9gb, i dont have an external harddrive that large so i was thinking, is it possible to just remove the old 60 gb, plug in the new 320 and use backup utillity to transfer ol games from 60gb harddrive to new 320 harddrive, could it work?
yes. that is what the backup utility is for.
No, no and no (third no is for the backup utility doing the job). You can't back up trophy data without PSN access. The drive in encrypted and formatted in in a way that can't be read from your pc or as an external. The GOW collection means you need to manually back up your user folder with your rif and act.dat files. Also, the GOW collection won't re-install without a pkg file, so you'll need that as well. Even if you used the backup utility you'd still need to do this, as your activation data is not copied with the backup utility.
The only thing I can think of is telling you to try backing up your whole user folder manually to an external, switch the drives, and copy the whole user folder back over, then reboot. On reboot it should recognize the profile folder and add it back automatically, hopefully with the trophy data, activation data and all. It worked like that when I downgraded, but IDK if it will work in your situation. You would still need to find the gow collection pkg download to be re-installed though. The only way around getting the pkg file is having an external large enough for a backup.
doesn't have to be a ext hdd u back up to i back up to my 80gig ipod works great if you got one or any other usb device that's big enough. mabie you knew that though????
