Move Files on Your Tablet

Whenever you snap a picture, take a screenshot, or download a file, they will be saved on your tablet's internal memory by default. Over time, you may have too many files in your memory. However, you can save room on your tablet by moving your files to an external storage system, such as a microSD card or a cloud service like Google Drive.

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Copy or Move Files

When you have way too many selfies or silly videos saved on your tablet, it's time to use your external storage. Follow the steps below to free up some memory.

Navigate to My Files, and then touch a file category, such as Images. Touch and hold a file you want to move. Touch More Options and then touch your desired option. Touch Copy to create a copy of the files in a different storage area. Or, touch Move to completely remove the file from your tablet and move it to a new location. Select Internal storage or SD card. Select a folder or touch Create folder to create a new folder. Your file will be copied or moved to the new location you chose.

Note: If you made a new folder, enter a folder name and then touch CREATE. Then, touch DONE.
