2 TB installed and downloading BF4 and its various DLC + updates and 99 hrs to go! :shock:
Oh dear that's just one game of many :roll:

Bought the seagate external drive from argos for £69.99 as its good value and i would like the old PS4 500gig as an external :-D

I've decided today to buy a 2TB drive (payday)

So do I need to download everything again?

Not sure now as as the recent update has a system restore like the PS3 had, came a bit too late for me as i had to download everything again |_() :lol:

Not had anyone try it yet so you can be the frugal guinea pig manny ;-) i guess any dlc will have to be downloaded again though :-? I imagine it wont copy everything :-| and i do hope the new update uses the USB 3.0 to full effect and will not take as long as the PS3 did :()>

When I upgraded my PS3 it took 2 1/2 DAYS to restore from backup. Did work though.

Backup and restore now give you the option to backup all Applications too. Started this last night 385GB takes 9 hours. I'll replace the drive tonight and restore and let you know how long that takes. Saves downloading everything again I guess

Well the backup and restore seemed to have worked a treat.

It took about 9 hours to backup (348GB) and then about 30 mins to change the drive over and install the firmware (had to download it twice) and then approx 3 hours to restore. No need for me to download anything again
