You can't clone the drive they are encrypted. You will need to just re-download everything.

To re-use the removed drive you will need to re-format it.

If you remove the hard drive it has to format before it will pick up again. so no dice de download I'm afraid.
#2
no but you can get a bigger drive and redownload them games,to your new drive
#3
I dunno, but check out some software like clone disk or partition magic.

This is something I plan to do in the new Year, so would be interested if knowing how you got on. Would like to drop a 2tb drive in if possible.

What a shame, I should have bought a larger HDD to begin with. The problem is that I have many digital games, and apparently you cannot re-download a digital game on your primary ps4 for some reason? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Anything you purchase digitally should be re-downloadable as long as the PS4 is registered to you and activated. (Note: You can only have 2 activated PS4's per account).

Should be no reason why they won't re-download.
