    Hi, I'm new to using the current leeful exploit. I have a 2tb disk on my ps4 with version 6.72 and I had a problem with the database, then all my games disappeared, I didn't know how to restore them so I reinstalled them again. Is there a way to make a copy of my full list of games? not to go through this again?

    There are db backup/restore payloads, but I'm not sure if they've been ported to 6.72 yet.

    Thanks for your quick response. In the leeful portal there is an option that says "DB Backup" how does this work? can i do something with this?

    If it works, it would dump a backup of ur db into a plugged USB drive.

    But u would need the db restore payload to restore it. So if that option is not available on the portal yet, you wouldn't be able to restore.

    So I just connect my usb to my ps4 and activate exploit and then I click and voila, create a copy. Is there another option that does not mention "DB Restore" is it restores my copy? Because the truth is I don't know much about this, the only thing I don't want is to install 30 games again ... I didn't find any tutorial on youxxxbe about this ..

    Why don't you speak to leeful. He is the one who is working on it and he will give you an 100 percent right answer that you are looking for.

    backup the app.db: upload_2020-8-18_16-6-49.png

    as you can see, it contains a list of your games. use sqlite browser 3 to open yours.

    I did it by FTP, I followed the section of this line and made a backup copy of the named file. So if something goes wrong, I just replace it with my copy?

    oh, yeah, that's where it's located. it's mentioned in @KiiWii 's thread about notable locations to remember on the ps4. anyway, yes, just reupload it.

    Don't forget addcont.db too so you don't have to re-install patches.

    I too had problems with 6.72 DB Backup and Restore on leeful's github.io v6 beta. The DB Backup worked fine but DB Restore just locked my PS4 up forcing me to kill power to shut down. Then upon startup, the PS4 wiped my DB! Luckily I had an up to the minute PS4 backup to restore. I only did the DB backup as well to make sure I had local backups of apps.db and addcont.db. I was mostly interested in the DB restore because it includes trophies.But I can live without those and it's kinda fun going through games and earning trophies all over again for me.
