I'm getting this hard drive

Now the major worry I have is transferring all my saves and game data to the new hard drive. First off does ps+ cloud saves including copyright saves work on my new ps3 hard drive irregardless as its connected to my online account and can I use a USB to transfer my game data?

Copyright saves will also transfer with ps+ cloud saves right?

If you do the back-up function, it saves everything anyway. But to answer your question, yes PS+ does transfer over save-protected games.

Yea but all the sources are saying that you need an external hardrive which cost about $80 to back up everything which is absolutely ridiculous

Copy protected do not get backed up with the back up feature. Only with cloud.

They do get backed up with the back up utility provided it's restored on the same PS3.

I just did it and it worked fine for me, though I used a external drive to back up everything rather than cloud saves
