I cannot get folder mount tovmove my Google Access music. In fact when I use it to browse my SD card, it never populates folder sizes or anything else.

I used this for the sane purpose on my Razr, with success. Has anyone got this app to work on their S4?

I'm also having the same problem. Are the files stored somewhere else, because they don't appear to be in com.google.android.music.

EDIT: I think I figured it out! The location for the music is actually /data/data/com.google.android.music. Happy listening!

First kill play music app so it is not running

Then (I used solid explorer, but I am sure you could use a terminal app. adb shell, or any other app you prefer to use.

In Solid Explorer by deleting the music folder located in /data/data/com.google.android.music/files/music and then I created a symlink from /storage/extSdCard/files/music to /data/data/com.google.android.music/files which makes a music folder that points back to the external sdcard.

Last reboot your phone

It works very very well and all the music I want to cache from what I have stored in google works well.

Hope this helps you out.

It has for me. I have cached about 400 songs offline after doing the symlink

This worked for me. But every time I reboot I get a "Google Music has stopped working" error. It onky does it once, right as the OS loads back up.

How'd you fix it? Or did it just stop?
