How to delete PS3 hard drive data?

Your PS3 hard drive might contain some important or sensitive data. If you are planning to sell off your PS3 or hand it over to your brother, erasing the data present in the hard drive becomes very crucial. Unless you want to share some of the crucial data with anyone.

Do you think you are done with removing the files by using Shift + Delete keys or formatting your hard drive? The answer is actually “No”. Formatting the PS3 hard drive either using Quick format or Full format, or by restoring to default settings makes the data inaccessible, but doesn’t actually delete them. Confused!

When you actually delete a file or format a hard drive, the data still resides on the drive but it becomes invisible since the old file system has been replaced with a new one. Any good data recovery software can easily recover the deleted or erased data. If you really want to delete the data permanently beyond recovery, you need to use a powerful drive eraser like Remo Drive Wipe, so that none of the available recovery software can recover the data.
