No, restoring licenses on PS5 does not delete anything. It's a safe process designed to refresh your console's understanding of the games and content you own digitally. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

Steps to Restore Licenses on PS5:

  1. Turn on your PS5 and make sure you're logged in to your PlayStation account.
  2. Go to Settings. You can find the settings icon in the top right corner of the main screen.
  3. Navigate down to Users and Accounts.
  4. Select Other. This option might be located at the bottom of the Users and Accounts menu.
  5. Choose Restore Licenses.
  6. Confirm the selection by choosing Restore.

The PS5 will now initiate the license restoration process. It might take a few minutes to complete. Once finished, you'll be notified on screen.

Important Notes:

  • Restoring licenses won't affect your saved game data, trophies, profiles, or any downloaded games.
  • This process is helpful if you're encountering issues where your PS5 doesn't recognize your ownership of digital games or content.
  • You can perform this action whenever needed, there's no limit on how often you can restore licenses.
