Hi all.

The sd card on my s3 lte failed. I managed to copy most of the contents onto my pc but lost all my photos and vids. When I copied the folders onto my new card I found it was 10gb full (16gb card). The main culprit is a file called languages which is 7.58gb.

What is this file?

I thought if it was languages for the phone then it would be on the phone, not the sd card.

Can I just delete it?

My phone seems to work fine without the sd card in...apart from the apps on the card.

Thanks

Matt

by ''new card'' do you mean its never been used untill now? or already used with current device or some other device?

im not sure but, if you had used this ''new card'' already, it could be that these languages belong to an app you used or are still using, for example like maybe a keyboard app (storing languages/predictions/data history) or navigation app. anyway if you say that the phone seems to work fine without it and your apps also then there should be no issues deleting this languages file. probably left on the card from an app that you dont use anymore..
