Had to format harddrive after 4.46 update

I have had a 1TB harddrive in my slim PS3 for three years now with no problems at all, then I installed update 4.46 and with in 30 minutes the console crashed when I was looking in store, so I reset console and it told me it console not shut down right so it told me system corupt and had to format drive, IF I say no to format the console just sits there so I have to format, I wouldn't have minded so much but I had over 800GB of games on console and 700MB of save games.

 

Anyone else had problems with new update?

it doesn't actually wipe all your data off the harddrive when that happens, it's done it to me loads, it just re-builds the harddrive

It said it couldn't rebuild it and needed to format harddrive.

Re: Had to format harddrive after 4.46 update

a few questions before you blame 4.46...

1. how many times have you had to hard reset your ps3 because of games freeze?
2. how long since you did a restore filesystem?
3. do you have your ps3 wireless connected?
4. have you put your ps3 in dmz mode in router/modem?

Re: Had to format harddrive after 4.46 update

1. I have never hard to hard reset from a game crash
2. Did a file restore about three weeks ago.
3. I always run PS3 wired
4. No DMZ because I don't need to

 

I done update and 30 minutes later this happened so yes this is because of the update.
