I'd like to get a larger card for my Ultra and wonder what the limit is? Recommended stats would be appreciated.
Is it very difficult to get everything transferred from old SD to new?
I'm running out of space for my stuff.
Thanks a ton!

Looks like up to 1 Terabyte.

My 256 GB card is still over half empty. I guess I don't have much stuff.

Thanks. Where is that screenshot from?

Are there particular specs to be looking for?

And what's the best way to get the data moved from the old card to the new?

Thanks!

For some reason, I have trouble posting links. They seem to revert back to Android Central. Below, hopefully, is from Samsung's site. Just scroll down to the Note section.

Personally, I've never used that large of a MicroSD, so I can't really recommend anything. In the past, I always bought Samsung branded cards.

You may know the following but it bears repeating:

~Remember to back up your card regularly. No matter how reputable, they can fail or become corrupt. Don't let the SD card hold your only copy.

~Stay away from purchasing cards from eBay or Amazon 3rd party sellers, too many counterfeit cards on their sites.

Since I regularly backed up my cards to my PC, when I moved to a new card, I would just copy & paste from the PC backup to the new card. (In stages)

I'm sure some other forum members can chime in with a more sophisticated method.

Is this as simple as a copy/paste, being sure to include hidden files?
I read somewhere that there can be an issue with files dates' being modified if certain protocols are not followed during the whole process. Is that true?
I don't want to make it more difficult than it should be, but I do want to be sure it gets done right.
TIA.
