So I'm coming from note 3. Is it just me or can you not move files from phone storage to SD card. ? I torrent my movies and music like a lot I'm sure do. But can't get anything I download to move to my SD card. ?

I also came from a Note 3, and when it had 4.3 on it, you could transfer apps to SD, but 4.4.2 stopped that. Its not a Samsung or HTC thing, its a 4.4.2 thing.

Just tested it and I can use Root Explorer to make a transfer between internal SD and external SD.

Hey,

I believe there was something reported about 4.4.2 not allowing this process. I went to Playstore and downloaded an app called "NextApp SDFix". It's supposed to restore your permissions to write files to the MicroSD cards. Check it out!!

You should be able to use HTC File Manager, which allows you to copy files to the SD card, without root access. Hope this helps.
