But anyway, despite all this, you can't always move absolutely everything onto the sd. Some apps even once installed on the SD still need to store some data on internal. I'm no expert, but I don't think you can avoid this. I don't know why it happens either but it does.

So, you haven't done the process wrong or anything, its just that not all 100% of apps can go onto sd card (but this is a very rare few apps) , but most can, and some even with this process applied won't go there by default - you just have to manually move them. Most however, will move there by default.

Hope this helps

Thanks very much for the explanation
