    i think you have to redo them all, and download any games you got from the psn, you probs can't access it if you've jailbroken it. you could try backup to an external drive. then swap the hdd, then restore data see if that does help. i'd need clarifing first.

    as for cloning you can only do a sector by sector clone. but in doing it will only recognize your larger hdd as the original which is pointless.

    i guess you could use the backup utility built in, in the xmb SYSTEM menu, if you have an external, if not you can download them again when online to same account,

    The built in backup utility should work imo.

    Ok buddy you want to copy ur contents such as PSN games, DLC's, savegames, images, videos, music to a new hdd. Ok you'll need 3 hdds (2 internal & 1 external usb hdd to do a full backup/restore).

    1st you have to backup older hdd (eg 160gb) on external usb hdd (size should be equal/bigger than ur older hdd, eg 160gb) by using backup utility from system settings. Now put your second internal hdd (eg 500gb) in your ps3 format it after formating connect your external usb hdd and restore it by using backup utility from system settings.

    You have succefully copied/moved all your contents to new hdd now.

    Note : This backup will only work on same PS3 from which the backup has been made.

    If this helped you plz give me a +rep by click on green button and then by choosing i approve.
