    Anyone got a tutorial on how to upgrade the internal HD of a Slim to a higher capacity whilst copying all the installed games/saves/settings over to the new drive? Running a Mac so can't clone it using Acronis and whatnot like the olden days, something that allowed me to image the drive via the PS3>USB stick and then back to the new drive would be great.


    Thanks

    In case anyone is searching for this at some point in the future:

    With Rebug you can go into the settings menu and select the "Debug for HDD exchange" feature, connect your new HDD via an external cradle and let it do its thing, swap the drives over, boot the PS3 and off you go.

    This method is nice and easy and copies across all of your saves, profiles, installation etc as a 1:1 clone just with more free space.
