To start playing game from that backup copy of the game available on your external or internal drive, you need to insert any original game DVD into the drive to just “emulate the loading process”.

Navigate to “Game Menu” and run “Backup Manager” (that you have installed in step-4). Select a game that you have backed up and press the “X” to install it. You can delete previously created back up by pressing “/\”.
