Your internal storage is completely different than sd card storage. What you should do here, go into your settings, apps, and see what apps can be moved over to your sd card to clear up the internal storage.

Very few apps are automatically moved to sd card once downloaded.

Welcome to AF! Hope you enjoy your stay here.

That's also the forum to your phone if you have any other questions regarding your device.

Welcome to the forums Jimmy

Looks like Dragon has got you pretty much covered with SD card moving, but to kind of nail the point down, without rooting your device your phone can only move a certain amount of apps onto your SD card, right now your phone has two different types of storage, Internal and SD card, everything defaults to your Internal storage (unfortunately), and the only way to be able to move everything over is by rooting your device.

Feel free to read up on rooting below:

What is root or being rooted mean?

Rooting Best Practices

Hope this helps and thanks for joining

Are the items you are trying to move sd card compatible?
