    Please tell me you also struggled to pry open the enclosure and nearly bled to death by stabbing yourself in the thumb with a screwdriver.

    No but the scat-munching backup is backwardly inserting a corrupt totem pole unpleasantly.

    Tried restoring twice. Meh.

    I too upgraded the hdd on my ps4 to 1tb. When I scoured the web for info there was a suggestion that a 7200rpm drive might improve access times, but as ps4 only supports sata 2 And not sata 3 there is limited scope for performance enhancing upgrades.

    Also I read somewhere, although I can't find the source now, that support for extremal hdd is on Sony's to do list for a forthcoming firmware update.

    I encountered the dreaded (unsufficient space on hard drive) when downloading updates the other day so have just ordered a 2Tb replacement - I best see if I've a suitable external hard drive to hold everything else I may not be able to go online for a while whist everything updates :brick:
