    Hi all, I have a full 500GB internal and 1TB external drives. I was thinking about just copying all the files off of the external onto a backup 2TB drive and then FTPing over every folder from the PS3 to a different folder on that same 2TB drive.

    This is much easier and simpler than cloning the drive sector by sector. Would just copying like that give me a good backup? Or is there stuff hidden that FTP doesnt see?
