How to Increase PS4 Slim Storage using External Hard Drive


Hi, this video shows you how to use an external hard drive on your PS4 Slim (it will also work on PS4 and PS4 Pro). It shows you how to set it up and will hopefully answer any questions you may have. I also show it working on another PS4 (PS4 Pro) which is useful if you want to bring your external hard drive to your friends house and do not want to spend hours loading up a 40GB game over the internet.
Many thanks Vince

I have that very hard with about 2T storage. It does NOT open my doc files. Do you know anything about that which can help?

Thank you so much! It was very helpful that you explained anything in detail.

if i go work and leave my ps4 on sleep mode as i always do can the hard drive stay in? or do i safely disconnect it then take it out?

Very informative video. I just got the exact same hard drive as you and ran into some problems. Even when plugged in the PS4(original model) either a: not recognized it or b: gave an error and refusing to format it despite it fitting the qualifications. I really don’t know how to fix it, but after dis/reconnecting it a few times it began working. It finally allowed me to use it despite giving me the same error again during the reformat process. Very strange. Just putting it out there for anyone who ran into the same thing.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT VIDEO. Highly informative, answered ALL of my questions about external drives and currently i use a Seagate 1 TB drive which holds almost all of my games. Thanks alot!

I see so you can make the internal storage or the cloud your game saved data while the external storage can be for the game. Reminds me of a memory card but in this case it's reversed. I like to have some internal storage as there's never enough. Nice and easy explanation. Thank You.

Saw that RDR2 is 100gb and so is Black Ops 4. Thought about an internal HDD replacement but CBA downloading the firmware, resigning into all my accounts and licence transferring etc. This seems like a much easier option. Sweet.

If I safely turn off the console and then unplug the external drive will the data still possibly become corrupted? Must i always "safely disconnect" the drive before i turn off the console?

Is 8tb Seagate hard drive for the PS4 worth getting because I've seen that it is 8.01 GB will it be to much or will it be fine to use once formatted?
Vinay Kumar
Is it required any software or jail break to PS4 to play these games...pls tell buddy
Virgil Jacobs
Also um drive club is 30 odd gb right. Is that the game with updates or just game and no updates? 🤔
