Additional Information

  • Note that once you are in the pictures and videos section, or any other section, tapping on the more button may not give us the option to move our files, images, or other information to the SD card. In order to move information to the SD card, or from the SD card to the system, please view our tutorials on those topics.

  • By default information is stored on the device. This is because many people do not have SD cards, and some models, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 series, do not even offer SD card storage. This means that when you buy an SD card, you'll have to set up the device so that information is stored on the SD card. To learn how to do that please follow our tutorial on how to change the storage location of information from the system to the SD card, or from the SD card to the system.
