How to move files to sd card

If you merely want to move photos, there is a pretty good guide at

If you merely want to change where your camera stores photos, where your browser stores downloaded items, where your radio app stores recordings, etc., you change that in your phone and/or app settings.

If you want to move more than that (such as moving videos you have downloaded from the web, pdf files you have downloaded, etc.) there are a variety of apps that will do the trick.

Some Android phones, such as the LG V20, come with a File Manager app already installed that you can use. Simply go to your list of apps and look for File Manager, and you can use that to accomplish the task. If your phone doesn't have a file mgmt app installed, there are several in the Play Store you can download for free. A popular one, and the one that I use since it can also manage your cloud storage, is ES File Explorer.

Once you have that installed, you can then navigate through your files and move what you want to your sd card.

For ES File Explorer, it has a feature rhat gives you quick access to files that it can readily categorize, making the moving of files pretty easy since you dont have to hunt them down on your phone. For some file types, though, you will need to dig into the folders yourself and find the files you want to move.

The steps to move files from your browser download folder would be:

1) when you first open the app you will see two boxes at the top. The one on left is Internal Storage. The one on the right is SD Card. Tap Internal Storage.

2) you will now see lots of folders. To browse the files in your Download folder, tap it.

3) to begin selecting files that you want to move, long press the first one you want to select. The mode will change to Select Mode and you can then Select All (button at top of screen), select additional files by tapping them, or tap a second one that's a distance away from the first one and then tap Select Interval (at top of screen) to select everything between the two you already selected (plus the first two you selected).

4) now that you have items selected that you want to move, tap Cut or Copy at the bottom of the screen (depending on if you want to keep the original), tap the tiny picture of a house in upper left of screen, select SD Card, navigate to where on the sd card you want the files (root directory of card, an existing folder, or create a new folder) and then tap Paste (bottom of screen).

If tou need to move files from another folder, it's kist as straightforward. The hardest part is finding what's stored where. For example, photos you have taken with your phone are normally stored in a folder named DCIM.

Use this tool with caution. Deleting the wrong file can result in apps no longer functioning correctly.

Hope that helps.

How do I use my SD card for internal storage?

There are a quite a few options.

  1. Open Terminal Emulator and check with the 'df' command, how much space is left on your partitions. Is /data or /system full?

  2. Goto system/apps/all > 'Sort by size to' find out which apps eat

    up the most space.

  3. Check if you have big size apps installed where you could change data location within the app to sdcard. Thinking of navigation apps and games. Every app where you have to download additional data to the actual app.

  4. Make sure you use the sdcard for media like photos (camera settings) music and video.

  5. CM has a built-in system to move apps to SD under settings/apps/on sdcard. Check apps that are big and you use rarely and are not interactive first. Reason: If you still use the USB feature those moved apps are not available to system anymore and are least likely to cause trouble.

  6. Another option is to use the app Foldermount. Use it to move certain locations to SD like the Download folder. Or the DCIM folder if the camera doesn't support sdcard location in settings.

  7. Use the app Link2SD which is able to move every bit from an app (including app data) to SD. It has a good overview on how much space an app really needs. You will have to create a separate partition on the SD card for that to work.

How do i delete an unwanted new folder from my ipad2

If you created a new folder for apps by dragging one app on top of another, you must:
  • Open the folder by touching it.
  • Touch and hold your finger on any app in the folder until all the apps start jiggling.
  • Drag each app out of the folder.
    • After dragging the last app out of the folder, the folder will disappear.
  • Press the Home button once to stop the jiggling.

Lost the messages icon from my phone

Messages is an Apple app that can't be deleted. You should be able to search for it to use it, and if you're on iOS 7, it will tell you in which folder it is.

To search on iOS 6 or lower, slide the home screen to the right until the search appears. On iOS 7, from any home screen, slide your finger from the middle of the screen, down. The search will appear at the top.

Enter 'messages' into the search box. On iOS 7, if it's in a folder, the name of the folder will appear next to the Messages icon in the search results. You'll be able to move it back to the home screen in the usual manner (touch and hold until the app icons wiggle).

I would suggest using Windows Restore (Start/All programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore to restore your computer back to the way it was before you moved the files. Then you can move the iTunes libraries from within iTunes itself.

If you are not familiar with System Restore, note that when you go back if you won't lose data but any other programs you've installed will need to be reinstalled.
