Whats not posted in most back up threads is that you should do a HDD file structer repair from the PS3s recovery menu (google) first. This will show up any lost, incomplete deletion of files and currupted files.
This allows you to Delete them again. These files can crash a back up attemp if not corrected.
As normal the bigger the drive the longer the backup.
The PS3 is not just backing up. its also encrypting the back up file so PCs can't do any thing with it.
I transferred 250gb to a 320gb hard drive a few days ago using the PS3 transfer utility. It said it will take 4 hours. But it took about 18 hours. So am guessing yours will take longer.
Did you have any DRM'ed PSN video store content.
People have downloaded the odd video as a test then give up on the service.
Does it still play. ( There is a reason Im asking )
Stage 2 of my upgrade is now complete. The 320GB from the 60GB FAT has now been used to upgrade by 80GB FAT. The 80GB to 320GB upgrade went smoothly. I was just surprised that I needed to download the 4.11 software onto a USB for the 80GB. I assume that the 60GB FAT stores the software somewhere as I didn't need it for the first upgrade.
Two upgrades for the price of one drive! :)
