    the answer is never,if you are not having problems never do it.

    Fair enough Schism... But with never having done it or any issues.. anyone have any proof of it hurting doing it while not needing to?

    *doesn't know to trust Schism or if getting set up for some crazy system invasion bull*

    Only way to find out is to do it yourself.. It doesn't hurt anything at all. If it did they wouldn't have put the feature in the system in the first place,

    This is interesting and I must have missed it the first time around. I've only ever had problems with my PS3 freezing during a few games. Nothing too serious but if this will help it run smoother, then I am not opposed to giving it a shot. Great info for sure.

    I'm assuming that this is like Defragmenting a PC, is my assumption correct?

    2K emailed me these steps to fix a problem with NBA 2K13 where it froze in My Career mode. They told me to delete the Game Data then do what this says. But it when I was doing this it said some files were corrupt, and I lost every single game save and game data I had, and none of it was backed up.

    Cover your arse, subscribe to PS+ and upload your Game Saves.

    I had a PSN download corrupt on installation a week ago. I attempted to delete the corrupted data, the system hung, then I got the dreaded "Your file system needs to be rebuilt" prompt on reboot. Sure enough, that looped at 25% and I knew I was fucked.

    However...I backup all Game Saves religiously to PS+, reformatted the PS3, downloaded my saves and I'm back in the game. For $50 a year, PS+ is a life-saver. I wouldn't run ANY Recovery Menu option without backing up first!

    Thanks for this info. I've never tried this before. I have the fatboy PS3 and, from what I read above, it should be fine.

    I hope it helps the speed when I play Fallout 3

    Thank you for these suggestions. Not being able to properly defragment my large-ish (500GB) drive is a concern, so these tips do help. Much appreciated.

    I didn't know this could be done. I've had my PS3 for about a year & a half now and have never done this. Thanks a lot and I'm gonna try this maybe this weekend.
