Everyone wants his/her data to remain safe and for this reason, people have long memory devices for data saving. Some memories are also present in the mobile phone which increases with time and the risk of getting lost increases with it. As it also causes a problem with how data transfer from phone memory to other devices.
All these problems solve by just one solution. If a person transfers his data from mobile memory to an SD card then memories save and become more portable. Not only the memories but data as well as information received from different social media sites that are saved in phones can also transfer to a PC or other device by just transferring them to an SD card.
Mainly another problem which is faced by android users is that most of the phone’s memory is preoccupied with the previously installed apps and the remaining memory is covered up by the new installation of apps. Memory for photos, videos, and documents is needed so an output source such as an SD card can help to deal with space issues.
knowledge about Storage
Most android phones allow the SD card to share the app’s data, for such devices the management of the storage issue becomes very easy and quick. But for some devices that don’t allow the external card to share the app’s storage, the storage issues become an extreme drawback for them.
Some apps allow a little amount of app data to transfer into the SD card while the major part remains in the internal storage which causes problems when there are a lot of apps installed in a device.
Moving apps by apps manager
1. Open up the settings icon on the mobile phone by tapping on it. Then select the ‘Apps’ option.
2. Tap on the app you want to move to the SD card, then select the ‘Storage’ option that appears in that app’s options.
3. If the option ‘Change’ is present then tap on it to move the app. If this option is not present then this app doesn’t support the feature of moving to an SD card. If all the apps on the mobile phone don’t have such an option your phone doesn’t support such a feature.
4.At last select ‘Move’ to transfer the app from internal storage to SD card.
If a person wants to change the setting again to internal storage then select the change option and after that tap on internal storage instead of external storage.
SD card usage as an internal storage
If a device doesn’t support moving the apps from internal to external storage then there is nothing to worry about because a feature is present out there for the solution. Most of the devices have this feature that the external memory is the format to act like an internal memory which is called Adoptable memory.
There are also the drawbacks of this feature that remove all the data forever and after if you format it as internal storage. Another problem is that all the app’s data is stored on the card. If you remove a card from the device then all the apps you have logged in with the SD card block the connectivity of the user.
To avail of this feature following steps are used:
1. Open up the settings icon which is present in your android phone. Then select the ‘Storage’ option present inside the settings.
2.Tap on the SD card option and then select the menu option present at the top right side. Tap on the ‘Storage settings’ option present out there then select the format as an ‘Internal storage’
3. If the working of the SD card is slow and the system is giving warnings that it harms the working then select the ‘Erase and Format’ option.
4. Select ‘Move’ and then tap on ‘Next’ then the system tells you how much time it takes to transfer data to an SD card and how much data is transferred in this process.
5. At last select the ‘Done’ option to confirm your action.
In this way, the system recognizes the SD card as extra internal storage, and this list below the internal storage of the mobile phone and the space issue resolve through it.
