Backing up your data regularly is a great way to ensure that important data is saved. You can back up data saved on your PlayStation®5 console storage to a USB storage drive.
Don’t turn off your PS5™ console while backing up or restoring data. Doing this may cause data loss or corruption, or damage to your PS5 console or USB drive.
You can back up the following data:
All user data saved on your PS5 console (excluding trophies) is included in the backup data. When you restore your backup data, your PS5 console is reset, and all data saved on your console is erased.
If you want to store your data and then return it without restoring your console, store the data in a different space:
When you restore a PS5 from a backup, the current system software version must be the same version or newer than the version on the PS5 console when the backup was made.
When you restore your PS5 console, Console Sharing and Offline Play is turned off. Configure the setting again to avoid losing access to your subscriptions and content.
