Help Moving installed apps from one SD card to another
What do I need to do to move installed apps from one SD card to another??
Iím new to the forum but hopefully this isnít too difficult a request! Iím in the process of upgrading my micro SD card from 8gb to a new 32gb card for better music storage Ė and itís proving not as simple as Iíd thought to move my apps across!! Got a standard S5830 running gingerbread XWKPY version 2.3.3
The phone recognises the card ok but so far Iíve not been able to successfully transfer the apps I have downloaded and installed from my old SD card to the new one. Most of the apps are freebies, but there are a few Iíve bought such as Poweramp and I donít want to have to re-install them all Ė and in some cases pay again! But, itís obviously not just as simple as copying them across and expecting them to work!!
I copied everything off my original SD card onto my computer and then onto the new SD card. When I then transferred this into the phone it wouldnít see any of the apps installed on the card and then when I put the new sd card back in the pc a lot of the file content and folders Iíd just copied onto it were missing!!
So, I'm assuming thatthe set up must be more like an intalled programme on a pc, which cant just be copid over onto a new drive and expected to work! But there must be a way?!
