FAQs on PS4 Cloud Saves
If you’re going to buy the Pro before getting rid of the other you don’t have to do any of this. When you boot up the Pro it’ll ask if you are switching from a previous PS4. When you say yes it tells you to hook an ethernet cable between the two and power the old one up (not attached to a TV). Then it transfers everything over. Games saves, etc.
If you buy plus, you can backup your saves to the cloud and re-download them on your new system. The PS4 also has a transfer system you can use by physically linking the two consoles (I haven’t used the gat, so no idea how well it works). You can also backup saves to a USB and transfer them that way. The cloud system seems to work better though.
If you cancel plus, you will lose access to your saves, but you need to redownload them anyway to use them so buying plus, backing up and then restoring, and canceling should work fine. You’d likely be paying the month at least.
The PS4 offers cloud saves only to paying subscribers to PlayStation Plus and syncs those saves to the cloud when you log out of the system but limits online save data storage to 1GB.
You can’t backup your PS4 data to the cloud because it doesn’t have an option to backup the entire system in one go. Instead, you must back up your Game and App data individually. Also, you can choose to back up data to the cloud* or to a USB device
If you‘ve saved or uploaded beloved PS4 games into online cloud storage, you‘ll be able to find and restore deleted or lost PS4 hard drive games from Cloud Saves.
About cloud saves though, you only get them with PlayStation Plus. Your games will automatically upload to the cloud and you can re-download them on any PS4 on your account. You can still use a USB drive to back them up or transfer them though.
Cloud saving on PlayStation 4 requires a PlayStation Plus subscription. There’s no getting around that. If you aren’t a member of the service, which is also needed for playing most games online, you can try it free for 14 days, after which you‘ll have to start paying around $60 per year.
When you delete a game, its game save data isn’t deleted. You can reinstall the game in the future and resume from where you left off. If you want to play a game again, you’ll need to reinstall it.
If you’re using the PS4 at short times and don’t necessarily have a lot of digital downloads, 500gb will get you by. A standard PS4 possesses 500 GB and it is not enough to store different types of PS4 video games and UHD movies. So for this, you have to upgrade your external or internal storage of PS4.
You can only transfer them between different PS4 systems, though without the same user on the new system, they cannot be accessed.
