    You can easily detach the PS3 hard drive, but apparently when you pop it back in the PS3 is all "derp detecting HDD, reformatting" >.> at least that's what has happened with my friends' PS3s.

    Open up this panel on the side and slide it out basically.

    Edit: You know the one good thing about losing my data? I wanna play ALL my games again :P even the ones I don't like as much as others like FFXII, but I will say just running around in FFXII is fun in its own exploring.

Cause it does that, last I knew. As soon as you take a HDD even already formatted for the system it will reformat it again.
    Sucks that you lost all your info, also you don't really need to back up the whole hardrive. When I switched my 80gig to my slim 160gig all I did was back up the saved game files on an thumb drive. I did not care about music and pictures as I was able to readd them later. That whole process took me like 10 min to back up all my games.

    Ya I woulda done that if I coulda turned on my PS3 before I sent it off oh well. As I said, I kinda wanna play all my games through again (though I doubt that'll happen since I have so many :P)

    Though I did have ONE game saved, that being Demon's Souls on the PSN+ thing (I seriously got PSN+ basically just so I could save that game :\ since before it went out it was having such clipping and freezing problems it corrupted my save data once).
