    [Answered] PS3 slim reapply thermal paste HDD question help?


    Hi guy, I have ps3 slim. I am thinking of open it up and reapply thermal paste because it started to shut down on me. I did some search around and think that i will be able to do it. but i have question about HDD.

    Will my ps3 format the HDD if i pull out the hdd and put the same one back in.

    thank you.

    The only way your HDD can be formatted is if you do it on purpose. (Or if it somehow gets corrupted)

    i have pulled mine out MANY times. You WILL NOT lose any data
