here's a question:

 

i went into safe mode and selected option 3 to check for any corrupted files.  it said there were, so i clicked ok to restore.  the console rebooted and everything seems fine. i went back into the recovery menu to double check and selected option 3 again thinking this time it will say everything is okay.  it still said there were corrupted files.

 

any idea why this is happening? shouldn't it have fixed any of the allegedly corrupted files? 


It tells you that every time you choose option 3.  If it tells you that twice in a row THEN you had corrupt files that needed wiping.  

 


so what you're saying is - if you click ok to restore and it tells you there are corrupt files a second time, then you have corrupted files? 

Sort of, it will tell you that there are corrupt files then restore.  After the restore, if it tells you a second time that there are corrupt files then you know you had corrupt files.  The only exception to that is with disc read errors.  If your games or movies freeze during playback and you try safe mode option three, it will only tell you about corrupt files once.  The only reason I can think of as to why it's the case with that issue only is because it doesn't work every time and it possibly only resets the disc drive software as opposed to actually deleting corrupt files.  weird, huh?

And, Kratos willing, you never should need it!  I've noticed that most people come to the ps3 board because their ps3 is having problems.  Safe mode is somewhat of a 'last hope' for some problems before dialing the contact number posted in my sig.
