Trying to retrieve old trophies

A couple of years ago I upgraded my hdd to 1tb as 40gb was too small for play tv.

At the time I could not connect to the Internet to sync my trophies so just accepted the fact that I had to start over.

But I can now connect to the Internet again and want all those old trophies back.

But my question is can I just refit my old 40gb hdd go online, sync trophies, then refit the 1tb hdd and have all my old and new trophies or will I have to format the old hdd when I fit it and lose it all

I'm not 100% sure, but I think it will format your old drive if you put it back in unfortunately.

Hi gixxervr4,

 

If you were to install the old hard drive it would be formatted when installed into the console so the trophy data on that hard drive would be lost.

 

Unfortunately if that trophy data was never synced with the network there is nothing further you can do to retrieve it.

Yeah sorry about that gixxervr4.

 

That's why we always recommend connecting your console to the internet and syncing trophy data before upgrading the hard drive.

 

You'll now be able to enjoy earning them all again at least? Silver lining?

Just had another thought,
If I refit the old hdd and have to format it, I might still have a copy of the hdd backup from before the hdd was swapped, is there any chance the trophies will be there still?

If you have a backup of the old hard drive you would be able to restore some data such as certain save game data, however trophy data does not back up when using the backup data utility which is why we recommend syncing trophy data with the server before backing up data/restoring the hard drive.
