    When you start the ps3 to start any game and head on to the system menu line, there you should without problem find your hard drive or memory card. Press it and you will see how much is left. You can delete stuff if you want more space or in worst case format hardrive, but you lose everything.
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    Go to Settings > System Settings > System Information, your available space will be listed at the bottom under "Free Space".

    a good trick you can use if yours is under 120gb is to find old xbox 360 HDDs and open it up - the drive is a small one, the exact size for the slim to take. PowerUp Rewards - Holiday Exclusive Offers Calendar

    else im sure you can find some cheap used laptop ones on craigslist or ebay - very easy to swap and upgrade. Just make sure you follow the backup instructions ahead of time, as when the new drive is placed, its wiped clean and formated, so if its an old one of yours - make sure nothing important is on it.

    That is how you find out how much space you have left. If you feel like you are going to run out of room soon and need more space, you will have to get a new HDD.

    What you'll need to look for is a 2.5 inch notebook/laptop hard drive disk. Once you have bought your new disk and are ready to install it, backup everything you have on your current HDD onto an external HDD or directly to your computer. After that, take a look at the many instruction videos on YouTube for removal and installation of your PS3 HDD. This is very easy to do. Sony was brilliant in making a little access panel for the ease of replacing your HDD. This will not void your warranty nor will it require you to open the actual PS3 main body.

    Once the install is complete, format the HDD, install all of the updates via the internet, and upload all of your backed-up data onto your new HDD.

    Good luck!

    If you want to sell old drive or wipe data from disk completely, you have to use the reliable tool that can wipe drive easily. This software uses nine standard methods to wipe data from disk. You can select one standard depending upon the level of security you need to wipe data. This process can be previewed when you download demo version of the tool.
