Default [SOLVED] Is SD card usage wrong?

Hello,

I encrypted internal memory.

Following, I installed several apps and moved some to the SD card.

The SD card usage not increased and the internal memory not decreased. So, I suppose it was due to the fact that I had encrypted the internal memory.

So, I uncrypted it. But, the issues remains.

How to solve this, please?

Setting, General, Storage, tap on Cached Data. It will ask you to confirm deleting it. Tap OK. It will free up some space.

Hello,

I doesn't help.

I did factory reset and formatted SD card.

The same issue remains.

Same here..
I found that the "moved to SD" apps were being moved to /mnt/asec which might be only a partition inside the ROM.
The external sd card is named as extSdCard and there is a "sdcard" that is actually a partition in the ROM.

Hello,

I did contact Samsung Support and used Smart Tutor.

"Move to SD" create the folders at SD card but doesn't move the files.

Even if you move the files manually it doesn't work, for example Amazon Kindle.

IT'S A BUG !!!

I use foldermount (pro version) to move several big folders to the external SD and it works like a charm on my T320.

I don't use the apptosd feature, I suggest installing link2sd its much better at moving the whole app to the external sdcard, and it just puts a link in the systems folders. Also I recommend buying the paid version of it as it will also move the data of the app as well

After read "The SDCard Bible for the Moto G 4G/LTE" (https://forums.motorola.com/posts/7e59cc7baf), I concluded I was wrong.

My UHS-I SanDisk Ultra® microSDHC™ 32 GB (SDSDQUA-032G) is working fine.

Feature "Move to SD card" is working fine, too.
