I just got my SanDisk 128GB micro SD.

Put the 128 in the adapter and plugged into PC.

Attached the Note 3 to PC with USB 3 cable.

Copied all the files in the 64 GB card (folder by folder) to the new card.

Put the new card in the Note.

Some things like video moved fine.
Docs to Go needed to be reinstalled and then refused to read the docs.

Many aps come up "grayed out" with sd on the icon.
They all seem to need to be re installed.

What did I do wrong?
How do I do this transfer correctly - I still have my Note 8 to do.

Thanks.

Note3 does not support 128Gb. 64 max.

Not true at all.
Under Settings, Storage it shows my SD card at 119 GB capacity.

Available 114 GB

No I don't know where where 9 GB disappeared to.

The difference from 119 to 128 is from the difference of "measurement units" in storage vs memory - 119 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 is about the same as 128 * 1000 * 1000 * 1000. The funny part is that the difference is not really stolen by Sandisk, the card almost certainly has 128 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 but the difference is used for basically error-correction.

The problem with the copy 64->128 is that there might be hidden files on the 64 which are not easily visible over MTP, probably the safest way is to get both cards directly connected to some PC and some software that is showing you everything (or alternatively some software that does "disk migration").

You missed a folder. The phone won't show it, not even over mtp, but a computer does.

It's called .Android_secure, I believe. This contains the app files.
