Rebuild your PS5 database

If all else fails, you can always rebuild your database through Safe Mode. Doing so will not delete any of your saved data, though we recommend you back up your data to the cloud just to be safe regardless. Rebuilding your database should repair any corrupted files it finds in the process.

  1. Completely turn off your console.
  2. Press and hold the power button until you hear two beeps, one upon pressing it and another several seconds later.
  3. Connect your DualSense controller to your PS5 with a USB cable.
  4. Press the PlayStation button on your controller to turn on your console and access Safe Mode.
  5. Select Rebuild Database, which should be the fifth option on the list.

This isn't what you want to hear, but unfortunately there's really nothing you can do to fix corrupted game save data. The best you can hope for is that you can use an earlier save prior to the one that became corrupted. You'll also want a PlayStation Plus account so that you can backup all of your save data to the cloud. PS Plus members have access to 100GB of cloud storage with their subscription.
