PS4 4.50 Firmware How to Set Up your External Hard Drive


How To Use your External Hard Drive
To be able to use your external hard drive, make sure that the one you have is utilizes USB 3.0. You can either use the 3.5 External Hard Drive or those portable ones. In my case, I used Nykos Databank of the Xbox One to be the external hard drive of my PS4, equipped with an additional 1TB WD Green 3.5 hard drive.

Formatting your external hard drive is quite easy. Simply go to Settings and go to Devices. Under it, youll find USB Storage Devices.

If you have multiple external hard drives hooked up on your PS4, find the ones you want to use. Youll be then asked to format it.

Youll then go through the set-up process which is pretty quick.

Once its done formatting, go back to the USB Storage Devices and you should see a green light icon beside the ones you formatted. If so, you are ready to use the hard drive!

Now, you have the option to either use the hard drive you just formatted or simply keep installing applications on your internal storage until its full. To change the Applications Install location, simply highlight the hard drive of your choice, click the Options button from your DUALSHOCK 4 controller, and click confirm. You should see a text Application Install Location on the hard drive of your choice.
