    Basically my Moto E is increasingly useless for all but bear essentials. I can't place any apps on the SD Card or they crash within an hour or so. I also get an SD Card not found upon reset quite regularly. The space got really bad after I accidentally Migrated data back to Internal storage, that made it almost completely full. I've no idea WHAT data was migrated or how to undo it. It's extremely frustrating.

    Considering replacing it altogether, but not sure what with.

    Could be your SD card is failing. How long have you been using it?

    No, it's not a problem with the SD cards. I've used 2 and this is a common problem with the Motos.

    I had ES File Manager File Explorer installed on my Turbo 2. All apps started not recognizing that my SD card was available.

    I uninstalled ES and rebooted after doing a Wipe Cache Partition.

    I got the error ONE more time ... rebooted with a Wipe Cache Partition.

    The problem has not reappeared in over a month and ES remains uninstalled.

    I can't prove it was the cause. Coincidence? It might be worth a try.

    (My initial assumption was that my top-of-the-line SD card was failing.)

    My phone is a Droid Turbo 2 and not the same as yours.

    I do realize how absurd my suggestion sounds. There is no guarantee that it will solve the problem. What if it does?

    If you use ES I suggest an experiment ... uninstall it ... reboot with a Wipe Cache Partition. No permanent data, settings, or installed apps will be touched other than ES.

    Try it. If it fails do the reboot /Wipe Cache Partition again.

    If it fails a second time then it is not the solution. Re-install ES if you are one of those willing to take the risk.

    Wiping cache seemed to stop crashes but apps running off SD are still very slow.

    Do you have the correct grade SD card for your phone? The lower grade (less expensive) grades sometimes have performance problems.

    Users Guide?
