    Can you interchange HDD's with PS4?

    I realise you can upgrade/replace. However, could I buy another one, and swap between that and the current one, seeing as I have downloaded digital copies of games on the current one, and I may run out of space soon?

    If you remove the hard drive it has to format before it will pick up again. so no dice de download I'm afraid.

    no but you can get a bigger drive and redownload them games,to your new drive

    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.

    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.

    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.
