    Does anyone have any idea how I can transfer all the data from my Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini to it's SD card? It's pretty much run out of internal storage, and it's only using the SD card for music and suchlike. If you can help me or know anyone that can, please do. Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Forums.

    I moved this thread from Android Lounge to the forum dedicated to discussing the phone. The best place to encounter users of the same phone.

    Well, I'm not using any just yet because I don't want to do anything wrong, but there's one called directorybind that I've seen but I don't have a clue how to get it or use it! I don't understand any of the phone related terminology either, as I'm PC based.

    hi,
    I have tried four different "move to sd" apps and none of them appear to work, they look great saying your can move these but not those etc, but when you try and move them they tell you to (or rather show you) the application manager screen and the "magic" move to sd section they all refer to is not there.....so I am assuming that you just cannot do it, so the 32 gig sd card I bought is only any use for music and photos I install manually from my pc. It would be really great if someone can prove me wrong!

    Well, I'm just glad that I'm not the only one missing out! I have a 16gb card though.
