    As the title says. I have an HDD with other stuff on it and some free space. Will it backup into a folder or will it wipe it out and back the ps3 to it?

    I haven't done this myself, but Sony seems to suggest that as long as you're using a FAT32 formatted drive, the backup utility will create a directory for itself. If it isn't FAT32 already, it will wipe out everything. Hopefully someone else will be able to answer with a more finalized answer about whether existing files are safe.
