    I switched over all my data and apps, moved the movable apps to my SD card. Everything functions fine, but the apps moved to the SD card are showing a grayed out icon IN THE APP DRAWER ONLY. They launch fine from the home screen (and have a normal icon) and also launch form the gray icon in the app drawer, but I can't seem to get the regular icon back. Also, if I move one of the gray icons TO the home screen, it stays grayed out. Any ideas? I tried unmounting and remounting the SD, which did nothing. Help!

    Samsung S7, 128GB Sandisk SD card, Android 8.0.0, Verizon.

    I am having the same issue on my Note 8. Wiping the cache partition per the above did not work. I have also tried unmounting/remounting the SD card, moving apps back to phone storage & then back to SD card again... nothing works. PLEASE HELP!!!

    Not sure if this will do anything, but if you don't mind setting your homescreens back up again, try going to Settings>Apps, tapping Menu>Show System, and selecting the launcher (I think it's called Samsung Experience?), and clearing its cache and data.
