So, I'm finally running out of space on my stock PS3 hard drive, and I feel I need to upgrade instead of endlessly moving stuff around to make room. I have a slim PS3 with two PSN accounts, tons of games, saves, images and videos on it. What do I need to do to swap the original drive out, but keep everything as is? I'm on the latest official firmware, and all I'm interested in is a move to, say, a 1TB drive. I know there's a "backup" option in the settings menu, which urges you to synchronize your trophies, as they will not be backed up. I haven't done a backup yet, since I don't have a HD at the moment, and before I buy one, I wanted to know how the backup process works. I want it all moves. My settings, my wallpapers, my games, saves, any and all downloaded files, everything. Ideally, this would be like making a drive image, but with the option to flash it onto a bigger drive. So, how does the backup process work and is it separate for each account? At the risk of sounding like a complete douche, please, do not answer if you haven't done it, or if you're not sure how the process works. My data is important to me, and answers like "I might possibly have heard about a friend of a friend, who has heard that maybe this is how it works" will be ignored. No maybes. I'm looking for a solid and proper answer. Also, once I swap out the drive, is it possible to re-insert the old one and use it as before in case something goes south? I think I read about someone losing all of their stuff, because the migration process failed, and the console asked to format the original drive upon re-insertion.
