How to delete PS3 hard drive data?
Your PS3 will accumulate space on its hard drive with time. Your PS3 hard drive may contain some important or sensitive data too. If you plan to sell off your PS3 or give it to your brother, it is necessary to delete the hard drive data, if you do not want to share some critical data with anyone. Do you think you are done with removing the files if you shift delete them or format your hard drive? The answer is actually no. Formatting the 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!

Any good recovery software can very easily retrieve the 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.
