If you're reading this or not I want to apologize to you godreborn. I actually know you from before this and used to get along with you even sold you the GC adapter for Wiimote. I am responsible for my own actions no excuses. You have no idea how much I've lost due to my anger issues and other issues, almost everything, that I am working on as you read this.

You're forgiven. It did get heated. You're the one who sold me the GameCube adapter on psx place? Works perfectly! :D. Btw, I have some weed for you. ;) I no longer smoke it.

Wouldnt just removing the games' install folder fix it being stuck in other? My guess is that the system tries to install the game but sees that the folder already exists and tries to relink it but for some reason fails

I agreed with a format if you just want to start over but formatting will never fix your games.

To fix internal hard drive games your options are:
Backup your app.db and restore it (doesn't appear you did this)
Run the python script (you won't be able to delete any of your games without editing app.db)

To fix external hard drive games:
Unplug external
Run Goldhen
Replug external
Wait a little while for the games to load and reappear

Neither of these scenarios require a format. Formatting literally means I'm giving up and starting over because you're erasing all data on that hard drive and Hen cannot save it after that

This is the correct python script for 9.0 (if internal games are missing) https://github.com/aizenar/PS4_db_Rebuilder_EXT

Formatting the internal will not fix your external games either.

Again if you just want to start over fine, but it is not a fix. Unplug > GoldHen > Replug works 100% of the time unless the games are already gone somehow.

But I can see my advice is falling on deaf ears because it's not even being attempted so good luck to you.


I had this EXACT problem and re running Goldhen and plugging the drive in DID NOT fix it for me. Also restoring a previous DB backup did not help either so its not guaranteed that either mothed will fix your issue.
The only thing that worked was a complete reinitialisation of the PS4 i lost about 4Tb of games that day.

Damn Sorry to hear that that's horrible ...4TB of lovely games mine would not load until after the 3rd try but they magically all popped up ... my internal HD was easy to fill up again its only a 500 gig HD .. i was panicking at the time our net sucks for the most part takes some time to get all that back ... i think at some point my ps4 crashed with the Hack USB still inside .. but im not 100% this other folder thing happens to normal ps4 systems i found out when googling the problem .. just a touch of bad luck for us both i guess

I’ve actually had to re initialise the PS4 twice recently. I have all pkg files backed up on another external so I don’t have to go searching for the hands again and can just start the loooong install process again!
