I had to format my system and didn't have a drive big enough for a back-up. I now intend to download all my games, but would it be better to just let them download while I play stuff offline periodically or leave my system on in the XMB until all downloads are complete?

Inefficient use of electricity running a rather overengineered system day and night ;)

No cooling-related risks if the airflow is sufficient (ie in the same position with the same items surrounding it, it didn't crash while actually gaming)

It's sitting atop my ps4, which is atop a table in an open space. Unless the PS4 becomes an issue, in which case I can put the systems side by side instead, ventilation shouldn't be an issue.

So a couple of the downloads are done (no longer showing up in my Downloads section) but I can't see anything on my XMB for them. I am running Ferrox right now, does CFW somehow block out my legit titles?
