I downloaded LittleBigPlanet almost a year ago when it was free and recently, I got the Game of the Year edition. I was hoping to just delete the game from my system and just use the Game of the Year edition from now on, but I noticed that the save data wasn't in the Save Data Utility. I believe that all of the save data is in the game itself on the console and if I delete it, I will lose all of that save data.

Is there a way to get the save data from the downloaded game into the Save Data Utility so that way I can delete the game and still have the save data? If not, then will I have to live with the dowloaded version forever for the sake of keeping the saved game?

for LBP any save should be in the "Saved Data Utility (PS3<sup>tm</sup>)" (right above the trophy collection), for LBP2 it's in the "Game Data utility" – ratchet freak Mar 4 '12 at 3:07
There should be an option in game to export the save (the game used to have a bug where saves got too big and made the game unplayable, that's why they stopped using the save for game data) – JohnoBoy Mar 4 '12 at 9:20
@JohnoBoy Will the profile backup retain all of my game data? So if I delete LBP from my console, all of the data will be in the profile backup? – Bryce Mar 5 '12 at 2:29
