As title says, i'm curious if swapping storages would corrupt data on both sdcard0 and sdcard1, or should i format sdcard before swapping (i haven't any apps on sdcard, they're all on internal storrage)
I'm on TeamCanjica's CM 11 (4.4.3).

For all I've read and personally experienced, of all the issues with swapping, this isn't one

So, it's safe to swap (to install Asphalt 7 )
All my pics, music and docs won't be deleted or damaged?

Media files are definitely safe (the system might get confused if you have some apps already moved to the soon-to-be-primary-storage external card... maybe), but does this mean you're not making backups reasonably often?
