PS3 HDD question

ReznikReznik Registered User regular
So putting a new HDD into a PS3 causes the PS3 to format that drive, even if the HDD was from another PS3, correct?

I have an old HDD from my PS3. If I take out the current HDD and put the old one back in, will the old one be formatted? Or will the PS3 recognize that the drive is from that same system and not worry about it?

    I haven't done it but my understanding is in the format / install process, it does something to "lock" that HDD to that console; hence the re-format every time you switch. Since it was already in that console, you SHOULD be ok. Again, no promises as I haven't done it.
