@raba1991: Ignore the other guy, he doesn't know what a database is or does.

What app/game is taking up all the space?

@raba1991: Hate to say this, but you need to backup the data and re-initialise the system from safe mode.

Faulty HDD with bad sectors maybe? Either way as @GTR12 said back up and re-initialise should be your next step. Its a pain I know

Its too common an issue for bad sectors, and Sony wont acknowledge it nor fix it, just google it and you will find lots of people with the same problem.

The thing is, slinging around difficult words you don't fully comprehend causes much more damage than you can ever imagine. I know this first hand. You might never notice this in your life, but this is one of the very root causes that lots of people think computers are too complicated to pick up an interest in.

I flipped out of something completely off topic but I still think it's important to bring up because otherwise it would never have been.
