Install a new HDD

So, I bought a 1TB drive off Newegg and am waiting for it to arrive. I don't have a external hard drive so I can't back my current drive up which is fine, I don't mind redownloading everything even though it will take forever.
Most game saves are pretty small but there are a few (WWE 13 for example) where it's nearly 4gb. No, not Game Data. GAME SAVES. Due to this ridiculous size it can't be uploaded to cloud storage. I formatted my 8gb flash drive to FAT32 and the PS3 detects the USB drive but it won't let me back any of my saves to the flash drive. NONE of them. It says it's unauthorized. I've even read that this is possible to do so I really don't understand whats going on. Did this change with a firmware update or something?
Luckily most game saves are not to big so I can put those in the cloud but these large ones I'd like to back up somehow.
Any help is appreciated.

I don't know if you have a ton of pictures like I do, but I like to have an outside source to back up my pics and music on other than a PS3 and PC.
I did delete all my game installs and music/pictures off my old slim 160 when I went to a 750 (I think 638 usable) because I did not want to sit through the PS3's long ass backup and restore process. Backing up a petite 60 gigs still took one and a half hours.
THat is weird about the game saves not being able to copy on to the thumb drive.
There really shouldn't be a limit on cloud storage...is this is a real feature offered or not?
