Phantasy Star Online is a great game and it's also one that you put a lot of time into. I've personally racked up over 300 hours just on one character and that's a lot of progress that can potentially be lost in the event of a corrupted save. This is why it's a very good idea to keep backups of all your favorite PSO characters. So how do you do this?
