    hi all,
    im going to replace my ps4 stock HDD with a bigger one

    500gb - 1TB,

    um, im not sure what the specs of the stock HDD are like speeds (rpm), SATA II?
    does the new HDD need to be the same exact specs as the stock one?

    will it make a difference if the rpm or SATA is different from the stock's?

    do this for internal drive



    Then you could reuse your 500GB in the enclosure if you wanted

    np guys,
    I got a external 1TB HDD with usb 3.0 and backed up my ps4 yesterday in a few hours,
    it was like 240. something gb, so np.
    today I'll install the internal WD 1TB to my ps4 & restore the backup.

    np, guys
    I got tech help to open and install the new hdd as the ps4 was hard replace
    (my model).
    backup and restored all my old stuff and all is like before, now just with even more space!
