Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Transfer Files to SD Card in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

As we all know that low internal storage can bring some problems to your Samsung Galaxy SIV, for instance error while saving or reading files or error while using apps. You may move some files to the PC or other storage to free up some space so that the device can work properly and doesn't encounter any error that is caused by low internal storage. But, if you want those files can still be accessed from your phone without having to spend the space in your internal storage then moving those files to the SD card is the best bid that you can do.


How to copy files to SD card?
Compared with "move files", copying files is relatively safer and more recommended because it will avoid you losing your files. You can use the following steps to copy files from the internal storage to the SD card:
  1. Open My Files app.
  2. Tap All files.
  3. Tap Device storage.
  4. Navigate to the required folder.
  5. Select the required files you want to copy to the SD card.
  6. Tap and then select Copy.
  7. Now, tap SD memory card.
  8. Navigate to the folder where you want to paste the files. If necessary, you can create a new folder by using the following steps:
    • Tap Create folder .
    • Enter the folder name.
    • Tap OK button.
    • Tap the newly created folder to open it.
  9. Tap Paste here button
  10. All selected files in the step #5 will be copied to the folder you have selected/created in the step #8.
  11. Now, you can safely deleted the original files you have just copied from your internal storage.


How to move files to the SD card?
Please note that I don't recommend to move files to the SD card because it might make you lose the files. But, in case you still want to use this method to transfer files from internal storage to the SD card regardless the risk that you may receive then you can do so by using the following steps:
  1. Open My Files app.
  2. Tap All files.
  3. Tap Device storage.
  4. Navigate to the required folder.
  5. Select the required files you want to move to the SD card.
  6. Tap and then select Move.
  7. Now, tap SD memory card.
  8. Navigate to the folder where you want to paste the files. If necessary, you can create a new folder by using the following steps:
    • Tap Create folder .
    • Enter the folder name.
    • Tap OK button.
    • Tap the newly created folder to open it.
  9. Tap Move here button
  10. All selected files in the step #5 will be moved to the folder you have selected/created in the step #8 and the original files in the internal storage will be deleted automatically.

As a note, "move" allows you to transfer files to the SD card and it will delete the original files automatically but you may be at risk losing your files though in rarely occasion, while "copy" allows you to transfer files to the SD card without you have to worry losing your files but it makes you have to delete the original files manually.
