Corrupted hard disk file system


Try doing a quick format on the hard drive since the data is already corrupted. If you can't do a quick format then your going to need to replace the hard drive with another one. Any SATA hard drive will work in that PS3. Just take the old one out and put the new one in, turn on the ps3 and do a quick format on it and your PS3 will be good to go.

Corrupt ps3 hard drive recover data


NO, there is NOTHING you can do. The drive is encrypted by the PS3.

The ONLY thing you can do is replace the hard drive with a new drive and keep the old drive somewhere safe until the PS3 is hacked.

That's it!

"the hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored"


           Ok, it appears that your hard drive in your PS3 is corrupt and needs to be reformatted. You can get an external hard drive enclosure and do it yourself. You would have to take the hard drive out of your PS3 and put it in the external hard drive enclosure and plug that into a computer with the supplied USB cable and format it. From what I'm reading out there, the external hard drive enclosure has to be for SATA 2.5" hard drive.             You could probably replace the hard drive with a larger one just as easy if you wanted to. If you don't feel comfortable with any of this, then its probably repair shop time. I hope this helps.moreover,,Use your recovery disc to reinstall your operating system. This should clean up your hard drive and restore any missing or corrupt files.
