and have 4 files in there
please help me thats over 8.5gb of data im losing.. ps3 states no backup files found. i also tried previous backed up data where am i going wrong.
You will probably find that you cannot restore your backup from 1 machine to another for copyright reasons. The original backup will have be locked to your original machine, So I`m afraid you will have to start again.

tooooooo funny.... well, not really, but at least you got it replaced without any problems! what's the lesson in this case, spend more quality time with your children or locked the door to the room with the PS3 in it?
good luck with the restoration, good news is if you downloaded anything from PSN you can easily retrieve it from the site, including full version games - bad news is you may be SOL when it comes to game saves if you can't get that backup restored.....
