I have a PS4 with 500gb HDD and I've purchased a new 1TB HDD to upgrade the capacity.
According to the official Sony guide, If I want to backup everything (users, saves and installed games) I'd have to find an external storage big enough (~400GB as the disk is almost full) to witch I backup and the restore from when the new HDD is installed.
So the path would be OLD HDD->External Drive->New HDD.
My question - is there a way to skip the external drive and copy the data directly to the new hdd. For example plugging the to HDDs to a PC/MAC and running some sort of copy command.
