    The Note 8 can't be configured as adoptable storage by default. Here's a thread with a possible work around that doesn't require root: https://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...id-phones.html

    so far I can't see that enabling dev option for allowing apps worked. too bad. might go the other way.

    yeah. none that I can find either. just another reason to root. Sammy doesn't like it, and yet they keep forcing us to find ways to root because they block us at every turn.

    After changing the setting in Developer options. Go to Settings > Apps > App Manager > Select the app > Storage. From there you can choose to move the app to external storage.

    Hope this helps,

    I didn't think that allowed you to move the entire app over to SD, just portions of it.

    it doesn't let you do anything that I can see on the N8, however it was shown as a workaround for the S7 and let you move the apps.

    and I don't even care about apps, I just want my apps to be able to access the external storage location and right now they can't. so why allow large cards???

    Right that's always (since Lollipop) been the case unless rooted.

    For those who think they have to have 5000 songs and 2000 photos on a phone. There is no other reason.

    So, even though the app isn't coded to allow move to SD, if you root you can move it anyway? And it still works?

    it's not rooted yet so the N8 remains a mystery, but on my other devices, yeah, you can move it. it's a permissions thing. if you root and give up knox (block it) you can have control.

    Okay, but not so much the question. Being able to move it and having it still work would seem to be exclusive things. It seems if an app isn't written to allow that type of operation, then it wouldn't matter if you had authority to move it.

    I wouldn't move them if they didn't work afterward, that said, all I really care about right this minute is that permission be given to apps, that I allow by picking, to utilize the external storage for things beyond photos, like email attachments for example. now I have to manually move them using dropsync and then delete them from the main. waste of time.
