I've recently set 50% of SD card as adoptable, and everything went fine partition is showed in settings, but phone doesn't use it I have installed some apps and they all went in internal partition not adopted one. When will phone start to use adopted memory, when I run out of internal? An also can I use adopted storage to save files for example from chrome since it only uses internal memory it's imposible to download on external?

  • There isn't any rule which says move apps to SD under so and so condition.

  • Apps don't move on their own into the ext.SD card (which is now a part of internal storage, since you adopted it). You need to migrate them as described in DiAlex'sanswer here. Also note that some apps ( poorly designed ) after being updated may be restored in device storage You will again need to migrate them)

  • You can move app data or store anything (media, files) if the app can access it ( I am not sure about Chrome as I don't use adoptable storage)

  • For a better understanding of how memory is treated see Mathew's answer here

  • one more question does I have to use migrate option from internal or adopted partition because I have that option only on 3-dot menu in adopted partition, on internal there isn't 3-dot menu at all..? Commented Oct 31, 2016 at 15:07
