So I followed the availble tutorial, which is written by an S7 owner called "MoDaCo".
https://bgr.com/2016/03/11/galaxy-s7-edge-tips-microsd-adoptable-storage/

- I had a normal "179:32" or something like that IDs.
- The command in the tutorial:
Code:
sm partition disk:179:160 private
did not work.
- I had to use:
Code:
sm partition disk:179,160 private

After this I had a unified storage, but I had "128gb" of storage.
I did not try to fill up my phone then, but I tried to use Spotify and it said "cannot find storage device".

So my question is: Is it possible to fix this somehow?
I have a Class 10/UHS-1 card, Kingston, 32gb.
It should be fast enough.

This trick is known to not to work with several apps like spotify, but other than that it works fine.
ps i the haven't tasted marshmallow yet.

Oh wow. Spotify would have been like the most important app, because it always places the data folder to the wrong location.

Anyhow, if apps need to be updated to use this new merged storage, then people will have to wait like two more years until every app gets fixed.

I watched the video with s7, the procedure did not yet, although it seems simple. But I do not understand why you include storage 128g if you have an SD of 32 g. Any number should be changed?
Your note 4 is 32 g storage? or you have more space?

It shows 128gb storage on top as overall.
First the new setup was all messed up.

Tapped SD, pressed "Move Data".
Then - the top was still showing 128gb, but tapping the SD showed me the correct numbers.

maybe you should give a tour of the thread of Sprint note, I read there that someone had no problems, but can not remember that forum. I appreciate your initiative.

Tried to find the said Sprint thread, but no luck.
Could you link it to me?

I am willing to test any tutorials, since I already formatted my SD card, and I have a second device that I can use while I fix up my Note.
