Your Galaxy phone or tablet has a large internal storage capacity, similar to that of a PC, and you can easily copy or move files between locations using My Files, just as you would on a computer. 

This includes Microsoft Word or Google documents, pictures, videos, audio files, and downloads, as well as any other type of file or media. 

If you have a large number of files that are taking up space in your internal memory, you can free up space by transferring them to external storage.

Please keep in mind that the screens and settings available may differ depending on your wireless service provider and software version.

Frequently Asked Questions

When I launch my app, there is no option to move it to the SD Card. Why is this?

Not all applications can be relocated. 

This could be due to the fact that the developer created the app in this manner or because it is an app that is pre-installed on the tablet’s ROM. 

While performing the aforementioned steps, make sure that an SD card is inserted into your device and that your device is not connected to a computer.

Why am I unable to transfer files to my SD card?

When you are unable to read, write, or move files, it is likely that the SD card has become corrupted.

However, the majority of the difficulty comes from the need to label the SD card. Insert the SD card into your computer and give it a name.

Ninety percent of the time, this will resolve the “Task Failed” problem.

What is the procedure for switching storage to an SD card?

Select “Storage & USB” from the drop-down menu under “Settings.”

It is likely that you will see the SD card’s details at the bottom of the list, including the option to format and use the card as “Internal” storage.

Once this is completed, restart the device so that you can begin using the card to run applications.
