How to Upgrade the PS4 Pro Hard Drive December 18, 2018

Happy Holidays everyone! Sony’s PS4 Pro currently ships with a stock internal storage capacity of 1TB. After owning one for nearly a year, that amount of storage just wasn’t cutting it anymore. We need to upgrade the internal storage of the PS4 Pro! Thankfully this is permitted by Sony, and this procedure can be performed without voiding the system’s warranty.

So how do we upgrade the PS4 Pro’s internal Hard Drive? You’ll need:

  • The PS4 Pro
  • A PC or Mac
  • A 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (exFAT Formatted)
  • A 2-4GB USB Thumb Drive (FAT32 Formatted)
  • A Phillips Head 00 screwdriver

The PS4 Pro accepts 2.5″ SATA 6.0GB/s Hard Drives, so you’ll have to get a drive that meets those specifications. We are going to do this procedure with a 2TB mechanical drive. You can also install a Solid State Drive (SSD) using this method, provided it fits the 2.5″ form factor.

We broke this procedure into two parts to make it easier for all of you. In part 1, we focus specifically on the prep work. Everything you need to do BEFORE taking your PS4 Pro apart is in this video, please watch before starting the process. If you would like a direct link to Sony’s PS4 firmware download page, you can click here. Regardless if you plan to back up your data or not, you WILL need the PS4 firmware to get your PS4 working after replacing the internal storage.

With prep out of the way we will now move to Part 2. This is what you’ll need to know to take the PS4 Pro apart, replace the internal drive, and get the PS4 working again after the drive has been replaced. We follow it up with how to restore all your data from the old drive using a backup.
