J7 prime use sd card for internal store

Nov 19, 2020
Hello everyone
I need your help.
I want to use my sd card as internal memory
but it turns out that in android 8.1 it is very difficult.
I tried adb but it does not recognize the Shell type commands
(try sm force-adaptive)
If someone has a solution and wants to help a noob, comment and help make my life easier.
Thank you for reading
PS: I am not root

Use the SD card as a data drive not an OS drive!
You got it all backwards.
Even if you can use the SD card like that you'll take a needless performance hit.

Store all critical data, backups etc on the data drive. Leave the downloads on the internal memory until they're vetted malware free before moving to the data drive.
