Hey guys, So I recently filled up my slims 160GB Hard Drive and thought I would invest in a a bigger HDD. So I got a 250GB one and swapped out the hard drives. My brain must have been off because when I turned on the PS3 I realized I did not back up my saves to a thumb drive!
I have PS+ but it will only upload game saves if you launch that game while the service is active. It won't back up older saves of games that you had on the system.
So my question is, I know that if I tried to put in my old 160GB HDD in, it will say that it needs to format the drive even though its already formatted and will erase the data on the 160GB one. I tried plugging in the 160GB drive into my mac with a usb adapter and it says that it can not recognize the drive. So does anybody know any way I can retrieve this data off the 160GB HDD?
