Trying to back up data on PS+ on a second profile on the PS3

#1indie_animatorPosted 5/16/2013 9:53:20 PM
I'm relieved to have the data on the games I went back through post-YLOD saved on PS+.

Except a bit on a second profile. It won't let me currently. Strange because it is the same PS3. The other profile is my name, while the main one is my brother's.

I searched topics & might have a solution: create a new PSN ID using the second profile.

Some games like Scott Pilgrim require a second profile to play 2-player offline.

Figured I'd see how anyone else has dealt w/this. Thanks!

I don't usually bump a topic, but due to wanting to pull this off this weekend, I will.

I can easily see why the topic didn't get a response due to the title not being interesting or "fun" as many. Yeah, this is just a technical issue. Gracias.

Misunderstood, didn't notice you were talking PS+.

When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

This makes no sense. Are you talking about a sub account you had on the same PS3? Because you know the cloud saving feature only works on the Master account, it does not work on sub accounts.

Only the account that has PS+ can back up their save data to the cloud

Thanks for the replies. Guess I just won't back up what's on the sub account since there's no way to copy data to the main one.

Have a good weekend.
