The YellowLight Guide to Backing Up Your PS3 (or TYLGtBUYP for short)

Backing up - Introduction

The worst thing about the YLoD is the realisation that you've lost all of your saved games and content. Even worse, if you send your PS3 off to Sony and have not backed your data up, then you can kiss your saves goodbye.

All of us here at have been stung in this area (which is just as painful as it sounds) so we thought we'd put together a handy guide that covers the various options available to PS3 owners, for either backing up your currently working PS3 (as YLoD insurance), or to transfer your data to a new console AFTER a YLoD.

There are several ways open to you, and each one has some pitfalls to avoid., created by IdealStudio. We accept no responsibility for any damage caused to your PS3 as a result of following advice found on this site.
