    TUT to backup HDD on ANY FW for Windows

    Intro: I make this TUT mostly for those that
    1. dont want to lose data
    2. are on 5.07 and cant reinstall fw
    3. are on 5.05 and have a broken BD Drvie and cant reinstall fw

    Tools
    1.
    3.0 or 2.0 USB HDD reader
    2. HDD RAW Copy 1.01
    3. a new HDD or a HDD to copy to

    NOTE: if you are copying to a new HDD or SDD it MUST be the same size as the old one or image, Also a backup image for a 500GB hdd is about 470GBs so plan accordingly

    step 0. install the Program

    Step 1 A. Take out your PS4 hdd and put it into the HDD reader and connect to your PC



    Step 1 B. Choose your PS4 HDD (you can find this looking at the HDD sticker on the outside)
    it will find all disks regardless of format
