How to Save PS4 Data to Cloud Automatically

Introduction

Sony gives everyone with a PlayStation Plus account 10GB of cloud storage space for storing game data. You can automatically save game data to your cloud space by enabling the auto upload feature. After you enable the auto upload feature and select what games you want data to automatically be saved to the cloud for, the data for those games will automatically be saved to the cloud while the PS4 is either powered on or in rest mode. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in the YouTube video below.
