Forgive me if this is already asked, but I couldn't find it anywhere. (Most results involved 1 device and moving data between 2 sd cards. I have two devices and I want to move all data off the sd card to the first device so I can move the sd card to the second device.)
I've upgraded devices (HTC Thunderbolt to Samsung Galaxy Note II) and would like to remove my SD card from the Thunderbolt and use it in the Note II. To get a clean start, I will format the sd card before placing it in the Note, and I know how to do this.
I want to keep my Thunderbolt and use it as a "poor man's tablet". It's already removed from the cell service and I'll just use it on the home WiFi messing around with some odd projects.
I've already uninstalled a bunch of apps, and moved any remaining ones from the sd card back onto the Tablet. What I don't know is how to protect the apps that remain from getting damaged when I separate them from the files they've been storing on the sd card.
For example, there's a lot stored in:
- /sdcard/Android/data/ (such as Google Maps and Swiftkey)
How do I protect the apps on the Thunderbolt from being harmed from permanently removing the sd card? Do I have to clear all their data, or uninstall/reinstall them after removing the card?
