My friend’s PS3 just got the “Yellow Light of Death” (which I hadn’t heard of until today). He says he wants to back up his saves and the rest of his information, but has no idea where to start.
With a little research I found that a PS3 HDD is just a 2.5″ laptop hard drive, however I have a few questions before I can help him.
1) What format does a PS3 HDD use? Fat32, NTFS, etc?
2) Can I back up his data to my computer, or just transfer the hard drive to a new playstation and have it work without having to format it?
3) What tools can I use to back up this data, or should I just image it?
