    Your best bet is to copy the whole thing to a folder on a PC. If that's not a possibility, I'm not sure what to tell you.

    unless you can remove it, and copy it to a PC, it is not going to happen.

    WiFi and the USB cable is way too slow if it is full.

    Do you mean the real, removable sd card and not the bit of internal storage pretending to be sd card? I ask because of your other thread.

    If you mean internal storage then USB to computer is your best bet. But that won't back up contacts, messages or app data, you'll need to make sure those are backed up separately if you are thinking of doing a reset (as your other thread discussed).
