    Re: How to move files from internal storage to sd card?

    Hello friend,

    Yes,you can transfer some files memory to Sd card.but you can't transfer all internal memory to SD card.

    "AppToSd" is one of the best app to transfer App from internal to external SD card.
    if you want To transfer all memories to SD card then it is not possible because some files memory can't move from Internal memory.
    System files can't moved from Internal memory to Sd card.
    If you want to free some space in your internal memory then used my recommended App.

    thats it
    thank you

    Re: How to move files from internal storage to sd card?

    Hi,
    Regarding the storage in your phone the phone stores only applications in the phone memory and all the other media stuffs are stored in the external memory. So if you want to move the application from your internal storage to external storage you have to open the application drawer and then select the option as "Settings" using that you will be able to change the settings in the application menu as you can move the applications to SD card by selecting the necessary application that is you can move them by selecting the option as "Move to SD" also there are only certain applications that are compatible with them being able to move to SD card so move them as you need them.
    Hope this Helps.

    Hello
    Do not Worry, just relax,
    In order to move all the apps installed in the internal memory of your device, you need to install an app called APP TO SD.

    This app allows you to transfer the apps from internal memory to SD CARD .

    Also, it pokes you whenever an app installs in internal memory of your device.

    The app is available in the PLAY STORE.

    And can be downloaded from there for FREE.

    Hello friend.

    To move files from internal storage to SD card .

    first of all make sure that your phone memory / internal memory

    is free to the extent of receiving the files .

    and if not then free up the internal memory and remove the unwanted files

    or apps or any data which is not required .

    once you have freed up the internal memory which is required for the copying of the

    necessary files from the SD card.

    Then Tap on settings , Application settings and tap on the option

    Manage applications . Mark the apps that you wanted to move

    and tap on options and click on Move ,

    Wait for some time until the files are completely moved .

    Hence you are done with moving the files .


    thank you..

    Re: How to move files from internal storage to sd card?

    Hello,

    You can either download "APPS 2 SD" application from playstore and use it to transfer from internal memory to sd card.

    Else follow these steps:

    Go to settings-->>applications-->>then go to the app that you want to move to sd card-->> tap on it and then tap on the button move to sd card.

    Some apps are factory defined means they will not have the option of move to sd card.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks
