    There seems to be a mystery as to how to backup a PS3. I can't get any straight answers, so I'm trying this forum. All I want to do is backup the harddrive, not put in a new hard drive.

    I have a 500Gig external harddrive partitioned into 4 partitions around 110Gig each. FAT32.

    Is there a difference between using the Backup utility or the copy/move function? Somewhere I read that you can only transfer files up to 4Gigs in size. My LittleBigPlanet profile data is 4.7Gigs large. Is there any way to back that up?

    I was told once you start backup, it will automatically backup the entire drive. So what happens when it hits the 4.7Gig file?

    Thanks. I checked both web sites and the off-shoots. Nothing is mentioned about a 4 Gig limit. So does that mean that FAT32 does not have a 4 Gig limit?
