    Backup question

    I am buying a new HD for my playstation and I need to do a backup. What exactly does it backup? What will I need to redownload when I put the new hard drive in to set everything back up? I have over 550 downloads on the psn store so what is the easiest way to redownload the things that I need to? Thanks in advance!

    This should help Also, I would only backup game saves & just re-download whatever games you want, to do that, just be sure to delete the games off your HDD before backing up

    I understand all that, but what, if anything, will I need to redownload? That article doesn't say that.

    If you backup for HD like it is now, all your games, saves, install data, firmware, songs, movies, basically everything will be backed up on a external HD if you have one, the only thing you need to redownload is trophies off your server, thats it nothing else.

    Awesome! Thanks for your help everyone, I will just do a full backup since I don't want to reinstall games and patches. Thanks!
