    So I have just run into a problem on my PS3, the HDD is full :glare: I've deleted things not needed, and very quickly refilled the drive...

    Now I estimate I have about 30GB of data on this HDD from when I was running a CFW and emulators/backup loaders etc, and also an additional 10GB from when the console could run linux, problem is I don't know how to remove them without completely formatting the drive (I don't have a 320GB+ drive available to backup to) Is it possible to specifically remove these or am I stuck with this useless data until I do a format? (and even then would a backup keep this useless data or not?)

    EDIT: Running firmware 4.20 btw

    I created a backup and removed everything placed everything and that fixed the problems mostly times :)
    or trow water on it and send it to sony (works for me)
