    Default Installing new SD card

    Hey all I have a s3 rooted with a 4gb SD card installed and I just got a 32 GB class 10 for it. My question is I have my stock ROM backed up o my 4 gig what would be the safest way to transfer the trwp file from the old one to the new one. I'm a little worried I'll corrupt the file or lose it

    Here it's easy, follow instructions below:

    - Using a USB Cable connect your device to PC & "Copy" (Do Not Move it) the SD card to a new folder on your PC OR Shut off phone (or dismount SD card in settings) & Remove old 4GB card & put it in SD Adapter to PC
    - Install new 32GB SD Card in the "Phone/device", go to settings, find the new 32GB SD & "Format it" using your "Phone"
    - Reboot phone & check the new SDcard is being seen (around 30-31 GB ish)
    - Connect phone/device via USB cable to PC and open that folder on PC
    - Copy (Do Not Move!) old SD card from PC to new Folder on phone/device (Optional name it Stock_Rom or similar)
    - Disconnect USB cables properly ie eject
    - Reboot phone & check, it should be all set

    I prefer the "reboots", "folders" & "proper USB Disconnect"

    Also put the old 4GB card in a safe place, I would also "Copy it" again to the "PC" as a backup

    Their are other ways but I find this the safest method for most all devices

    Hope that helps.

    Those are often large files, so that seems about right. Did you keep a copy on the PC as a backup? You should have one copy on new sd card, one on the PC and maybe one on the old sd card if you left it there.
