    What exactly have you tried? Some saves can be 'backed up' to other profiles on the same PS3, to USB drives. Obviously, they can't be used on those accounts; you'd have to copy them back to your original profile.

    I believe you have to remove the copy protection first before you can copy the save data onto some other device

    Are you worried, that you're going to lose your data, is that why you want to back it up?

    PS+ offers much more than just backing up your saves, but yes...that's sometimes the only method. Especially for copy protected saves.

    Maybe contact the company that released the game and let them know what you think...sometimes that goes a long way

    Remove copy protection (from what I read) seems rather lengthy and arduous. Hopefully nothing happens to your data.

    Or if you really want to back it up, you may have to "bite the bullet" and get PS+. On the bright side though, PS+ is . I mean free games, storage and the works...pretty good. You may want to consider it.

    Lol. Sorry for the late response. It's $50 for a year, and like User said, with the amount of free games you get + the storage (see what I did there ) It's totally worth it!
