I've swapped my PS4 hard drive a few times! Make sure you have a Phillips screwdriver and a USB drive with the latest PS4 software. Back up your data, unplug the console, and follow the steps to gently slide out the old drive and pop in the new one. It's like Legos for grown-ups!

To switch your PS4 hard drive, first, back up your data to an external drive. Then power down and unplug your PS4, remove the top panel, and unscrew the hard drive caddy. Swap out the old hard drive for the new one, reassemble everything, and reinstall the system software from a USB drive. Easy peasy!
