Just replace the hard drive. If it is under a year old then call Sony customer support and they may pay for a new hard drive. I hope this helps.

My son's PS3 is coming up the hard disk file system is corrupted and will be restored.


The hard drives that are in Playstation 3's are notorious for having corruptions. You will lose all your data but there is no way around it. The best suggestion for you honestly is you can put a much larger hard drive in it, i recommend Western Digital, it uses a 2.5" laptop SATA hard drive.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

PS3 stuck on screen saying hard disk corrupted


Hi

Please refer to this link for ways to troubleshoot the hard drive and sometimes if you are lucky you can recover the problem - however if these solutions fail the unit will have to be sent in for repair I am afraid.
