[Q] Getting Internal & External Storage to work together
Coming from the Evo, I'm not used to having both Internal storage (8gb on the phone) and External storage (my microsd card) available to me. As I'm restoring files and data, I'm finding that numerous apps are hardcoded to only look to one filepath: /mnt/sdcard. That was fine on the Evo, as that pointed to the actual SD Card, but on the P4G, it points to the Internal storage.
Being rooted, I tried just making a simple symlink in /mnt/sdcard to /mnt/sdcard-ext but that didn't fly. And I don't want to necessarily "swap" the two by hacking whatever is the equivalent of fstab.
Thoughts on how to better manage having two data stores? Am I just going to have to get used to a new way of doing things?
