I know you can transfer data from ps4 slim to pro via lan/Ethernet cable. But what about other data you may have on a external hardrive on the old console in this case to ps4 slim is there a way to get the data on the external hardrive that is on the ps4 slim onto the ps4 pro.

    Extended storage? Yes, just connect it, power on the PS4 and sign in with the same account on the new console.

    It takes a while for the PS4 to add all the titles on the extended storage to the PS4 's dynamic menu but not hours or anything; you'll see an icon in the top right where the time is normally displayed. When it's finished you'll see the time come back.

    Some of the games on the external HDD may update with 4k texture updates upon detecting a Pro and 4k TV.
