Manage files and apps on your Galaxy tablet
Just like a PC, your tablet has a massive internal storage, and you can easily copy or move these files to different locations with My Files. But if you accumulate too many files in your internal memory, you can save room by moving them to an external storage system, such as a microSD card or a cloud service like Samsung Cloud.
Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Move files on your tablet
Navigate to My Files, and then tap Internal storage. Touch and hold the file(s) or folder(s) you want to move. Tap Copy to create a copy of the files in a different storage area. Or, tap Move to completely remove the file and move it to a new location. Next, navigate to and select your desired destination:
Internal storage: You may move the file(s) or folder(s) to a different location within the same internal storage.
SD card: If you have a microSD card inserted, tap SD card, and then select the destination location.
Google Drive: If prompted, sign into your Google account to access your Google Drive. You can transfer files to and from the cloud.
OneDrive: Log into your Microsoft account and grant permissions for MyFiles to access the OneDrive cloud.
Once you've found where you want to put the file, tap Move here or tap Copy here.
Move apps to a microSD card
Before you relocate an app to a new storage location, make sure you have a microSD card inserted. Otherwise, your apps will have nowhere to go.
Navigate to Settings, and then tap Apps. Swipe to and select the app you want to move. Tap Storage, and then tap Change. Choose SD card, and then tap Move to change the app's storage location.
Note: If you do not see the Change option available, you can't change the app's storage location. For example, preloaded apps cannot be moved.
