Tips for Gamers on How to Optimize Your PS5 Storage

If you’re a heavy gamer, you should upgrade the PS5’s storage capacity because these days’ game files are bigger than ever. It’s also necessary if you wish to store screenshots or videos. Thankfully, you have some options at your disposal. Let’s examine them; continue reading.

Upgrade of Internal SSD

Upgrading the internal SSD memory on your Playstation is the first and best course of action. Make sure the SSD has a minimum sequential read speed of 5,500 MB/s and is PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 NVMe. It should have a heatsink for cooling and storage ranging from 250 GB to 4 TB. Installing the memory does require opening the PlayStation, but it’s a simple process that only requires a few screws. Because it is a component of the system and operates quickly, this memory is always there when you need it.


A USB drive is the best option if you want to store game files and save files, images, and video in a way that you can move them between systems. Additionally, using a USB drive eliminates the need to unlock the computer. It can be an HDD or SSD, but USB 3.0 or higher is required. When you insert it, you might need to format it to use it with the PlayStation 5.

Transfer Games

Navigate to Settings > Storage.

Choose the game you wish to transfer, then decide whether to move it to the internal SSD or the extended storage.

Tips for Managing Storage

  • Regularly remove any media, games, or apps that you no longer require to clear up space. Erroneously taking a screenshot or recording a video is simple and can quickly consume a significant amount of RAM.
  • Keep in mind that you can always remove and redownload games as needed, as well as re-download digital purchases from your library.
  • To make room on the internal SSD for PS5 games, which need quicker loading times, store PS4 games on an external USB drive.
  • Utilize the cloud storage feature of PlayStation Plus to store game progress and other data off of your computer.
  • Consider uninstalling downloadable content (DLC) and add-ons for games you no longer use to make room on your computer.
