Google Play Music is installed on my TrueSmart, but stores the music for offline listening on the internal 8Gb memory. Too small! I've added a 32Gb SD-card for that music storage, but I do not find how to make it works!

By default, the Google Play Music are stored on /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/com.google.android.music/files/music, that is on the internal 8Gb memory.

I tried to create symbolic links (see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2538274), but without any success:
- when I try to create a symbolic link in /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/com.google.android.music, I obtain an error explaining that this SD-Card "do not support symbolic links"
- I can create a symbolic link in /data/data/com.google.android.music, that is the 1 Gb RAM. But Google Music dont use it (even when I choose 'phone' as the default storage in parameters/storage of the Truesmart).

I need help:
- to create a symbolic link on the 8Gb memory
- or, to force google music store on the 1Gb memory (and thus on the 32Gb card with the symbolic link)
- or, any better idea?

Thanks in advance!

If your device is rooted then use folder mount app on play store. I use this to keep both play music and Amazon music files on external as card.
