If you removed the micro SD card from a device (any device) while it was still in use, this can cause filesystem corruption. This can often be repaired by connecting it to a card reader on your PC and using a disk scanning tool (e.g. ScanDisk on Windows).

Forgot I still had this thread open. It looks like I was suffering from a rather well known "feature" of Android 4.4 (I avoided it because running 4.2, but I guess it applying to this version as well). After rooting I just had to go through this procedure to manually edit: /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml and reboot and now its working. Yay.

A simple solution, don't know you have tried or not. Install any Cache Cleaner apps if possible. Some uncleaned cache may take GBs of data. If its not possible, delete the files from the cache folders inside the folders in Android\data\< some_folder > \

I had the same problem on my Huawei Ascend P2, I did a factory reset and it seemed to work, though I highly recommend copying over to your computer every file on your phone before even trying to do so, I don't know the cause myself, the theories I have are: Virus Damaged internal memory If it still doesn't work after the factory reset then you need to take ...

I currently have a Moto G and I use Google Drive to transfer files to my device. If I want something to send a file right to my device without cables I use Wifi File Transfer. It's super lightweight and doesn't run in the background. It doesn't have a folder option but I like manually sending stuff right to my phone since I only have 8Gb of storage. [note] ...

FolderSync could come in handy here. Define a "folder pair" (i.e. which directory on your Android device to sync with which directory on your computer), using any of the available protocols (SFTP, Samba, or any other). Then either chose for some "auto-check" (e.g. have it synced every night), or push the button manually. Using the paid version, you could ...

One way you can achieve this is using an app - rSync and use a Tasker job to periodically (or conditionally) upload/download data from your phone. You can refer to rSync's documentation for its configuration and other setup steps. You can configure it to only specify required one way transfer of files.

I also have the A727. :) It appears that whoever designed the system should have been more careful with how he named stuff -- the internal hard drive is called "sdcard," as you mentioned in your question. To use the SD card on your tablet, you need to hit the "SD card" button on the top of the screen (using the built-in file manager), as in the picture ...

Did you download the 'Twitter' app or is it a system application? In other words, did it come preloaded with the phone? One thing to keep in mind when moving apps to SD card: Apps that Shouldn’t be Moved to the SD Card: Widgets – no matter how menial in usefulness or design. System tools – many might not operate as intended without being on the ...

There are 2 possible situations here, or both: System apps cannot be moved to SD due to being 'protected' system apps. Apps that have widgets cannot be moved to SD as it breaks the widget and many devs will take out the option to move to SD.

It's the kernel, not just the mount command, that determines what filesystems are supported by your device. To add support for filesystems your device doesn't already, you need to find the kernel sources and config for your device, reconfigure the kernel to enable the filesystem you want, build a new boot.img, and flash it to your device. Since that's ...

As of July 2014, I've found the following options for SD card encryption: Boxcryptor - not open source; developed by German company; supports sync with cloud storage; unclear if they've received a backdoor request cryptonite - open source; supports mounting TrueCrypt volumes; no backdoor request yet

As well as being in the right format, there are two types of SDXC cards. For devices that say that cards above 32gb may not be supported, they only support the V2 Sd card, and devices that say they support above 32gb, the take both v2 and v3. V1 is now redundant.

For 1) you can think of them like different partitions of a disk. Internal SDCard usually is found at /sdcard (though not always directly mounted there), while internal storage (as referred to) usually goes to /data. More details can be found in our tag-wikis on storage, internal-storage, and file-system. For 2), most likely not all apps. And if you can do ...

I have a HTC Desire and in my case non of the other answers worked. But I solved it in his way. Do not go into the camera app settings. Go into the general phone settings. The path is then...

You need root access for it, so if you are not root you can manually move the apps to the SD card (when it is possible) in the Config>Applications (I dont have my phone here) menu and go one by one; or you can use another app for it like app2sd or similar.
