    Hi.
    1 .Hi have 3 gb of apps on my sd card and after i rebooted it som apps disapeared so i went ahead and downloaded them again and moved them again to my sd card and rebioted again and they keep on disaperring why is that?
    2. If i unmoant my sd card and put it back in my phone will it mess up my apps ( make them disapear and mess up my home screen)?
    3. I recently bought a 128 gd san disk ultra plus sd card brand new from best buy.
    I checked the sd and every thing is real!
    When i try to move certain apps that can be moved i get a message saying not enough memory on sd or somthing like that.
    And i have arround 90 gb left!!! It is really annoying
    P.s. i am running android nouget (7)
    And have a galaxy s7 edge

    How did you mount that SD card when you first inserted it? as adoptable storage or just for files?

    How are you moving those apps to the sd card? That shouldn't be an option with Nougat.

    You waited a whole 20 minutes? ;)

    I may not be able to help much, as it's several years since I moved apps to SD, and I've no experience with that phone/software combination. But absolutely if you unmount the card you will break all apps that are moved to it. But that should not be permanent, so if they do not work after remounting the card a reboot should fix them. So apps disappearing after a reboot is definitely wrong.

    I assume you are using the system settings to move apps, not some app. If you are using a third party method then please tell us what that is. Also if you get an error message when you try to move an app then please tell us exactly what it says - we only have the information you give us, so it helps if this is as complete as possible.

    While I'm here though, how did you test the new card?

    Ok, your previous post said you used the option in the settings, then your next talks about using an app. Are you talking about the same thing here, as you appear to be contradicting yourself.

    Inserting the sd card should mount it, though there should be an option to manually mount it if that doesn't happen.
