How To Fix PS4 ‘Game Saved Data Cannot Upload’ Error

So, today I turned on my PS4 and received numerous notifications telling me that saved files for games such as Bloodborne and Hotline Miami 2 had not uploaded to online storage.

After investigation, I discovered that this is due to exceeding the 1GB maximum storage capacity for PlayStation Plus subscribers. So, how do you fix it? Well..

    Thanks for the info. However, I just really wanted to point out that this web site has so many ads all over the place it is mostly unreadable. I can’t believe somebody would think this mess of a layout was acceptable. You’ve inspired me to get an ad blocker, which I will definitely use if I ever come back to this horribly designed site. Congratulations.
