Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Turned on my ps3 and got The hard disk's database will be rebuilt? Why? All my games are gone. can anyone help fix
This kind of error is caused mainly by problems with energy suply, what corrupts the Hard Disk data (or not).
if you loose all your information, unfortunatelly you will not recover it =/
to avoid this kind of problem, try use a line filter and don't let the PS3 turned on (i mean, in the on/off switch behind the system) when not using it !

Tips for a great answer:
Firstly don't worry, your HDD has become corrupted which is quite common if you don't switch your PS3 off properly.
Its difficult to say whether you'll lose any data or not, but if you rebuild the database your HDD should be fixed. If it gives you an option to rebuild the database then choose it.
If it doesn't then access the recovery menu and choose option 3 as described in the thread below.
Any further questions feel free to ask.
Correct? a nice vote would be awsome
