  1. The PS3 doesn’t support NTFS external hard drives, so you will need something formatted in FAT32 in order to perform the backup

  2. you’ll need an external hard drive big enough to hold everything

    then just go to backup in system settings

    Sony uses seagate but any 2 1/2 inch sata hard drive will work , I have a western digital

    look for a 5400 rpm drive , a 7200 rpm one puts out too much heat
