    You can create back-ups by dumping your bought games.


    But obviously since it's against the rules here, I'm not going to discuss where to download PS3 ISOs.
    Oh btw google search is always your friend. And of course, it'd make it easier for google if you searched the name of the game you want as well. Maybe something magic will happen

    Did you checked my multiMAN guide in PS3>Guide and FAQ forum?
    it's long to read, but you should learn a lot of things to backup your original to HDD (or where to place these downloaded backups on your HDD).

    You should search for either the release filename or the "release folder" name, not the game name.

    When release group dump a game, they give two names for that release:
    - File name
    - Folder name (they create a folder on an ftp, and place the file into it).
    The folder name is the long release name, while the filename is always an acronym filename, like imars-attaoa.rar for the folder name Atelier.Totori.The.Adventurer.of.Arland.PS3-iMARS.


    You can see this filename on the portal of gbatemp (for nds and wii release list), or here for other consoles.
