    Just wondering since I saw a thread saying someone had this issue on an older firmware. If so is there steps I can take to fix it after?

    yes, it happened to me a while back.
    backup .db files in /system_data/privs/mms using ftp as a precaution

    Yeah, that’s the payload to backup the db and saves.
    It happened to me after something went wrong after I installed a small handful of backups, so it was no big deal just to restart from scratch.
    It was my fault as I just thought to try rebuilding the db in safe mode without finding out the implications.
    I hadn’t backed up the files so I had no recourse and then found the same payload/info as you have here.
    It taught me a valuable lesson and I make sure to back them up regularly now.

    Ok so I stupidly did the safemode database rebuilding without a backup and sure enough all 40 of the games on my PS4's 2TB HDD disappeared, at least according to the XMB. FTP'ing into the console showed me that they were still there however. So I ran Stooged's PKG BACKUP payload and it transferred all of the packages to an external HDD. I was initially very unhappy thinking that I had well and truly borked my system but thankfully said payload saved my proverbial bacon. The more you know!

    it might be the fake license that's causing that to happen. that's why you should back up your databases asap for anyone who's on 5.05.
