I have tried 3 times now to restore the data from my old PS3 hard drive (320gbs) to my new one (1tb).
In each time, it freezes at 49% stating it will take about 4 and half hours each time.
After the second time, I deduced the size of the data file (from 230gbs to 177gbs) as well as complelely redoing the back up process.
The back up process always completed without a problem.
My software is up-to-date and the 1tb harddrive is brand new and works fine.
Please help me, I've been doing this for 3 days in which the PS3 and HDD have been on all the time.
Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can complete the restoring process?
Sorry I forgot to say;
IF it comes to the solution that I have to download EVERYTHING again (please god no...), I will be able to download the PSN+ content that has been removed over the months? (Like the free Burnout PSN game from last summer or DLC for comes)
Once again, I only ask this IF it has to come down to it... oh God... 230gbs to download would take weeks...
I don't think the estamated time means anything 'cos it only said it would take about 6 hours when I started it.
Each time had a overall timeframe that it would complete at. I waited:
First time: About 4 hours after completion.
Second time: About 2 hours after completion.
Third time: About the time it said it would complete.
I should point out that I did roam around my downloads and they always had the same imcomeplete file size. (So Burnout P would always be about 2.3gb everytime)
Plus, the harddrive I used to back up that data, has a light infront that flickers when it's in use. It stopped every time it got to 49%.
IT WORKED! Seems it wasn't frozen at all just showing on screen as if it is. Sony should sort that out. Thank you to everyone that helped.
Now... I have another problem.... My PSN+ content is locked and I think I know why. During my first attempt to restore the hard drive (the one that was incomplete but I still could use the PS3 normally), I activated the PS3 system from my account. At the time I believed everything was ok and I wanted to check on my PSN game data.
It wasn't until after I activated it that I notice that the restoring was incomlete.
Anyway, I tried to activate my PS3 now but I still can't access my PSN+ games. Any idea on what I should do?
