The data on your drive won't be lost if you back it up in advance and then replace it on your PS4. Or you can update the PS4 hard drive without losing data using professional disk cloning software like EaseUS Disk Copy.

All data on the internal hard drive will remain secure even if you remove it. The problem is that when you put the hard disk back in a PS4, the console will format it when it restarts. And all information will be gone at that point. In this case, you can back up your PS4 hard drive in advance and the backup on a USB drive or in the cloud to keep it secure.

Cloning is the best and easiest way to upgrade a hard drive on PS4. Cloning can help you upgrade or replace a PS4/5 hard drive without losing anything. But you have to use professional cloning software.
