I just turned on my PS4, and received a notification to tell me a saved game could not be automatically uploaded.

Looking at some more detailed information I was told that "Data with same name has been uploaded from another PS4".

Considering I only own 1 PS4 and you can't even activate more than 1 PS4 at the same time, I was wondering what exactly happened.

Could this particular error message have been triggered by the fact that I manually uploaded my savegame to the cloud before putting my PS4 to sleep? Or is it something else entirely?

  • I get this error message fairly regularly, and have only manually uploaded from the notification menu after it has already failed.

    I think this is a bug introduced in the 1.7 update.

According to this article, this has been happening increasingly ever since the 1.7 update which introduced several features. It's important to notice that this HAS happened before to other users but it wasn't as often or to as many people as now.

It's important to notice that I did not find any official statement from Sony regarding this.
