“So tell me, how do I manage content on my PS Vita when using a Mac or PC and where do I download the software?”
We have been asked this question many times over the past few days, so we thought it was about time we provided you with the answer.
Windows PC software – where to find
Simply put, if you are a PC then it couldn’t be easier. All you need to do if plug in the Vita and from there you will be given the option to download the software.
If for some reason you would rather do it manually, then you can easily download the software for windows from here.
Mac Software – where to find
If you have a Mac then things get a little bit more complicated, but not by much. When you plug your Vita into a Mac the system will not recognise it, therefore you will need to download the software manually. That’s about as complicated as it gets.
You can download the Mac software here.
Using Content Manager
The content manager itself is very simple to use. No client appears on the screen of your PC or Mac, instead it’s all managed from your PS Vita.
The content manager is split into two sections, Copy Content and Backup Utility.
Copy Content does what it says, allowing you to copy content into folders which you can decide the location of via your PC/Mac. You can copy Games, Applications, Music and Video to and from your PS Vita. If you copy games then any saves you have for that title will also be copied over.
The Backup Utility is quite similar, except it just takes over everything on the system, which is obviously an ideal way to keep your data safe. We would recommend that you do back up your Vita now and again, just in case you run into any issues.
We decided not to give you a step by step guide to using content manager as it’s quite easy to figure out, but we thought you’d appreciate the links to the software if you didn’t know the whereabouts already.
