    I need to replace the SD card in my N4, but can't find a way to transfer all data from the old one. I looked in Kies, settings, etc but don't see a way to clone the old SD. I know I could just copy over, but I'm concerned there may be hidden files I'll miss. Anybody know if a way to do this?

    I did this yesterday by copying all the folders and files from the old card to my computer and then after inserting and formatting the new card simply copied them to the new card. I connected the phone to my computer via usb cable and simply opened the SD card. I am using Windows 7 so it shows up in computer, if you are using another OS I can't help with that.

    Using the computer seems like the best way if your laptop has a port for SD use that it should work quicker that way.

    On the go. It allows you to connect mouse, keyboard, usb stick and the like to the phone though a usb otg cable (or directly, depending on the device)

    Ok, thanks. I bought a SanDisk duo USB drive (micro USB at one end, standard at other), and used the stock My files app to transfer the files. Then copied them onto the new Micro SD card. Worked fine.

    Glad it worked for you. The dual drives are excellent so you can skip the USB otg cable.
