Just insert your storage drive and follow the steps below.

Go to Game -> Saved Data Utility. This is where all your saves are stored.

If the hard drive is formatted to FAT32, you can move or copy (back up) saved games to it. However, it will not automatically back up and load saved games from the USB drive for games you play.

• Go to Game -> Saved Data Utility. This is where all your saves are stored.

• Browse to the right save game and press triangle. And select Copy in the newly opened sidebar.

• You’ll be prompted for the destination. Any external storage drive will do (like a USB stick, hard drive or a memory card), save games aren’t so very big. Additionally, you can also transfer the save game to another user account.
