Seriously easy accessing the HDD at the back of the Pro.

Arghhhhh myate i'sh did it with my old PS4 and External Drive on my Bone lid cause it was the original 500GB HDD I was using in the caddy lad connected to the Bone. So Pro, OG PS4 and Xbones External drive slightly longer than 30 mins but easy. Only problem was the wrong FW I had on the pendrive trying to install it on both PS4's :fp:

So the only thing to worry about which isn't a worry really just an inconvenience is making sure you have the correct update downloaded to a pendrive otherwise it won't install from fresh.

See my post from 18 Dec on the previous page:

Yeah went fine. Got the USB drive dismantled and the drive swapped into the PS4 fine and the old PS4 drive back into the USB caddy and both working great. Did take about 30 mins and was rediculously easy.

Just the fun of downloading and reinstalling everything now but it's getting there.

Cheers for all the advice and tips everyone.
