Hi Thanks for reading.
I want to access the external usb hard drive plugged into my ps4 which is formatted as extended storage, then transfer files from extended storage to a second usb hard drive which i will later unplug from the ps4 and connect to my pc.
I can access the internal hard drive using filezilla, but don't know how to access the external drive.
Can you help.
Thank you

Thanks ! Where is that under the filezilla menu tabs, where should i go

Also, is it possible to plug the ps4 extended format hard drive, into a pc. I read in an earlier post that the pc can't read the ps4 encryption

Many thanks

It's a location when you connect Filezilla to ftp. Yes, windows won't be able to read the drive.

Right, but i mean where is the location, where do i go, what is the exact folder pathway.

Also, The reason for this is because i had a database crash and lost all the games, the ps4 is not indexing the games anymore.
I watched a few youtube videos and learnt how to get the games back on the internal hard drive, but not the external hard drive.
Is there anyway to get the external hard drive games back on firmware 9.00 Have been searching everywhere but no luck. Found something on a modded warfare video but it was for firmware 7.55 and i can't get it to work on 9.0

Thanks

Thanks. I dunno what happened. Turned on the ps4 and all the games are there, came back for some unknown reason, and they all work as well. Can't figure it.

Thanks so much for your help, much appreciated.
