If you are getting the corrupted drive message this means that you have corrupted data on the hard drive or there is something wrong with the hard drive. If you have tried the built in repair options and they do not work then you will need to format the hard drive with an externally with a computer. The link below will help you do this.

Ps3 says The hard disks file is corrupted and will be restored


This is a standard issue and usually means your hard drive has gone bad. You can try a reformat and see if that works just in case it's just an OS corruption, but this doesn't often work. Your best bet is to just replace the Hard drive

Dun't forget to rate me if this helps :)

My files on my hard disk are corrupted whaat do i


You can try taking out the hard drive from the ps3 and hook it up to a computer that has SATA connections. Then copy the files to a flash drive. This way you can at least save the information from the hard drive.

At that point, put a new SATA hard drive into the PS3 and format the drive. Then at that point put the information that you saved to the flash drive onto the ps3 hard drive. Do this all in the computer after you format the new drive in the ps3 and then put it into the computer to copy the files from the flash drive into the new hard drive.

My ps3 has a "hard disc been corrupted needs reboot now" press x to reboot. I did all that but wont reboot but say the same thing over again


You have a damaged or corrupted hard drive. try researching for a fix on the internet. If that doesn't work then you'll need to get a new SATA hard drive for it, install it and power the ps3 back up to format the new hard drive and the old one could possibly be used with an enclosure as an external hard drive for your computer.

Hard Drive PS3


Hi there,

The easiest method of working around a Corrupted hard drive is this.

You need to go out and purchase a 3.5" SATA USB Enclosure. they are quite cheap.
you then must remove your Hard drive from the PS3 and insert it into the enclosure.
connect the enclosure to your PC, the HD Will show up in your computer, you must then perform a FULL FORMAT on the harddrive under the FAT32 Format.

Once done, re-insert your hard-drive, and the problems should have gone !

If they do persist or the hard drive is still corrupted, i would suggest contacting sony Customer support !

Hope this helps ?!
