Ok so I noticed last night I had a corrupt save and trophy file. I tried deleteing but it wouldnt so had to force reset it which tbh Im a bit worried about as I heard it can **** up your PS3. But on the other hand the date info said It was on there since the 9of May last year and this is the first Ive seen of it?. Has anyone got any advice?

Have you tried booting in safe mode and doing a

The worst thing is that you might lose password info, but if you know them all then you should be OK, or save game data, but only those that are corrupted.

I used it to sort out sound problems with MW3.

Just make sure you do that option and not the one that wipes ALL data.
