I am using Android 8.1 in a Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime.
Some apps show a Storage used option. This means they can be stored in Device memory or External storage. I mean to move all apps to External storage whenever possible.
In some cases, when I select Storage used -> CHANGE to move to SD card, after 100% completion the app is still in Device memory.
Is there any way to solve this?
- Cannot move app to SD card: "Not enough storage space" is a similar question from me (although not the same).
- I would avoid removing the app and reinstalling, just to try, since I have this problem.
android:installLocationattribute which decides if the app is movable or not. See my answers to related questions: How to free Internal Storage by moving data or using symlink / bind-mount with Adoptable Storage? and How to move apps from internal to external storage?
android:installLocationattribute which decides if the app is movable or not, I would expect the OS to check that attribute and show the option as per it. Otherwise, what controls the appearance of such an option?
