If the building PS3 repair options do not fix the issue then you will need to pull the hard drive from your PS3 and format it with your computer. The link below will help you do this. Note if this does not fix the problem then you will need to replace your hard drive.

PS3 says ''The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored'' We press OK and the system says its restoring. When restored it comes up with the same message.


You need to restore your hard drive manually by connecting your hard drive to a computer, once installed you must select the hard drive and format it. once done you must format again but as FAT 32 and Done

When I turn my PS3 on, it says hard disk file system is corrupted and will be restored, I press OK, it gets all the way to 100%, then it restarts and tells me the same thing. What do I do?


Your HARD DRIVE (aka: Hard Disk), located on the left side of the unit, has crashed. You will need to replace the HD.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

On ps3, when switched on, says hard drive corrupted, will restore. after a while trying to restore, same thing comes up again.


  • Turn off the PS3 console, if it isn't already.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Connect your controller to the console with the USB cable when prompted to do so.Turn on the controller. You will now have access to the PS3 recovery menu.Select option three which states "Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files." This option will identify and correct and corrupt files. Your PS3 should now be fixed. If this option doesn't fix your problems, you'll want to do a complete system restore and follow the next step.Turn off the PS3 console by holding down the power button.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Select option 5 which states "Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch." Be aware that performing a complete system restore will cause all data on the hard drive to be lost. This option restores the PS3 back to its original factory condition.

    Easy fix. Hold down the power button on the system until it turns red. Release, and repeat. Release and repeat, only this time wait until you hear 2 quick beeps. Release quickly and then you go into Safe Mode, Choose option 5, PS3 System Restore. This will also reformat your disk. System will automatically restart when you complete the system setup. Only warning is you lose all login info and possibly content you have downloaded. You are done.

    Hard disk's file system is corrupted.


    Most likely your hard drive is completely corrupted. It could be as simple as a new Hard Drive replacement or as complicated as a motherboard issue.

    The Hard Disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored


    apart from physically reformating the hard drive yourself (taking it out and loading it on laptop or desktop and format, at your own risk), there isn't much else you can do. If the console is still guaranteed then contact sony and they will send you a new one.
    If you do format it your self when you replace it in your ps3 you will need to format it again using thier options.
