Error code 8001002A when backing up

I have just tried doing a back up of my PS3 and I got the error code 8001002A.

 

After googleing and checking out some forums they say I must format my PS3. Is there any other way of fixing this error? Or is it just a case of copying everything one by one to my external HDD then formatting?

Dang.. no solution on this forum either.

 

But, I found a way to fix the backup error 8001002A myself.

 

1. If you power off your PS3 and then power it on again while holding the power button until you hear 2-3 fast beeps you will enter the PS3 restore mode.

2. Then you can select multiple restore options. You select file system restore. (The PS3 will then restore the broken filesystem, it take a couple of minutes or so.)
3. When restore is complete you will be able to use the backup utility again to backup your HDD.

Enjoy! ;-D

Formatting is the only way to get rid of it. Happened to me a few times as well. I just copied my Saved Data Utility files onto External HDD(had my music there as well) then formatted.
