    Default Micro SD/ Gallery Question

    I just upgraded my Micro SD from 16G to a 32G Sandisk ultra class 10. My question is this since I'm running a stock SGS3 is there a way I can transfer over all my pictures from the internal SD to to the new ext SD by default? Or is the only solution doing this manually on a PC? I have over 600 pics and I wanna free up the internal space hence why I picked up the 32G micro SD. Help is severely appreciated

    Your question is a little unclear - didn't you already have stuff on your 16GB SDCard? Are you wanting to move the content of the 16GB SDCard to your new 32GB SDCard? If so, your best bet is to connect the phone to a computer.
    If you didn't have anything on the old SDCard that you want to keep, and you just want to move content from the phones' internal storage to the new SDCard, you can do that using any of a number of file management apps:
    Android File Manager: http://market.android.com/details?id...artFileManager

    My question is i have pictures on my internal SD of the device by default. In order to free up internal space is there a way i can move over all of my galley pics to my new ext 32G micro SD by default? Besides using a PC and doing it manually? Sorry if my question caused confusion.
