PS Plus Question Regarding Cloud Saves

16 replies 229 views Edited Jul 4, 2013

I had a question regarding playstation plus. How do you setup your system to automatically save to the cloud? Does it upload after yo quit a game?

It uploads the saves at the time designated in your system settings. For example, I have my PS3 set to turn on at around 2AM. At that time it will upload any saves of games that I have played since the last upload, perform updates, and the like.

So that is the only way it is done? I would hate something to go wrong while having the console turn on it's own in the middle of the night. Espeically download a system update the bricks the system like the last one

That is the automatic way. Saves can be uploaded manually via the Saved Data Utility just as if you were copying saves to a USB drive or external hard drive. I've had Plus since it was introduced, minus a couple months last year, and I've never had an issue with the automatic update.

No. From what I can see the people who had issues had upgraded their hardrive in the past, but that may just be a coincidence
