My PS3 Recently got hit with the RLOD and I reflowed it so I can back up my save files. However it won't let me copy my Dark Souls Save File because it's Copy Protected. Anyone know how I can back it up? I have over 500+ hrs worth of progress on it and would really rather not lose it.
Good question. I think you can back up the save files using a new feature in the latest Firmware update, But it backs everything you have up not just the one save file you want. So you will need a Memory Card or External hard drive that could fit it all. Other than that i'm not sure how you can bypass that stupid copy protected thing.
PS Plus on the cloud if it's worth that much to you.
It is but I don't know when I will have enough money to buy a replacement PS3. So I will have to spend 15 for the first month of PS+ and if it takes over a month to get a new PS3. So then I will have to spend another 15 dollars to get the save file off the PS+ Cloud. So were talking 30 dollars just to get one Game Save off my PS3 lol. It means a lot to me but not that much.
I think it keeps your files if you let it lapse and come back. I let mine lapse for a couple months while I was out of town and when I got it back still had my files.
Well regardless I don't want to use PS+ anyway. I shouldn't have to pay to back up my PS3's game saves, that's just retarrded. Surely there's another way to back up Copy Protected Saves besides PS+ I would think.
With the back up utility. But I think you have to back everything up that way.
Yeah I was reading up on that. I've basically deleted everything on my PS3 so I can fit everything that's going to be backed up on my 4 GB SD Memory card. Really annoying I have to go through all this crap for one measly Gave Save file tho.
How can I be certain the Backup Data Utility backed up my Dark Souls Save File? Before I used it there was a message that said blah blah this won't beack up copy righted material. To see if my Dark Souls Save File was within the Data I backed up I looked at it on my computer. All the files are in a DAT Format though so I have no idea what is what. Could I get some confirmation on if this method worked on Copy Protected Saves please?
