You'll need an external hard drive or USB pen drive to store your existing data from your PS4. Follow these steps to back up and restore your data:
  1. Format the USB storage device
    • Plug in an USB hard drive to your Windows PC. 
    • Right click, select Format
    • Choose the exFAT format option. 
    • For the allocation unit size option, choose the maximum possible value listed in the drop down menu.
  2. Back up data for games
    • Connect the USB storage device to the system. 
    • From the function screen, select Settings > System > Back up and Restore .
    • Choose Back Up PS4.
    • Press X to add a checkmark in the checkbox for saving Applications
    • Your PS4 will now restart and transfer all the data. Depending on the amount of data, it could take a few hours, to longer than a day.
  3. Now you can copy the data you backed up earlier to the PS4 after switching it on. 
    Keep in mind that you must be signed in with the same PSN account used when you first copied the saved data.
    • Connect the USB storage device you used to back up games to the system.
    • From the functions screen, select Settings > Application Saved Data Management > Saved Data on USB Storage Device > Copy to System Storage.
    • Select a title.
    • Press X to add a checkmark in the checkbox for the saved data you want to copy, and then choose Copy.
