    Hey guys,
    I have upgraded to a 16g card and was wondering if I have to "reload" all the files that were on my 8g? I did a backup on the pc so I have access to all the files. I just didn't see the need for all the folders. I had read the thread here but it did not cover the just needed.

    I would say most if not all files will be needed back on the sd card. It's just as easy to move them back and then delete the files that you don't need.

    But some that are not probably needed right away would be pictures, nandroids that you may not need on the sd card, kernels zips, rom zips..... files that you can redownload when you want them or the making of future nandroids.

    when i did what youre doing i just darn near made an exact copy of everything. but id take this opportunity to go thru old apk folders that you dont have/need anymore n stuff like that. but there isnt much you NEED to carry over as the apks are in the system info on your device. there are some folders that apks put stuff into, but they might even recreate them if needed
