Due to Google's Android kitkat restrictions desire 816 users can't modify sd card data . There are some ways like sd fix , modifying platform.xml files etc but all these requires rooting of ur phone , which obviously void ur warranty .

This topic is discussing ways to edit sd card data without rooting so that users who are not opting for root also ACCESS SD CARD DATA .

FIRST ::
1. For FOLDERS Only :-- use the FILE MANAGER which is in Polaris office app . It can only DELETE, COPY ,RENAME the docs file or any FOLDER (Not All Files).

2. Use " SOLID EXPLORER " App from Google play store . It can copy any file from ur internal memory to sd card (external memory). . Though renaming and deleting is not available now ..

If u know any more ways to access data , let us know . ..

Hit Th@nks If deserve It .

3. Go to SETTING - STORAGE - (SD CARD) - Make More Space - and delete the file u want ..In GALLERY u Will find all pics and videos & in MISCELLANEOUS u can delete any file with FOLDER tickets option .

Hit Th@nks If deserve It .

Hmm, I have a different software. Wonder if it used to work but HTC patched it in the software I have which seems to be more recent than the one you have. 😣Click image for larger version

Yes it helps

Install root then install busy box then install xposed then there is many mods inside xposed to enable accessing ext storage


I use this way write now
