How to transfer photos and videos from phone to memory card?

Transfer photo to memory card If the internal memory of the phone is already full, the right solution is to transfer user files (photos, videos, pictures, music) to the microSD card. This frees up your phone and makes it faster.

Transferring files to a memory card

  1. Insert the memory card into an empty slot on your phone.
  2. Open File Explorer -> Photos and select the photo and video files you want to transfer to the memory card. Select photo
  3. Click “Move” and select SD card or Google Drive (if you use it as a cloud storage of files) – they give 15 GB of space for free, photos without restrictions. Move to SD card
  4. Select a folder (or create a new one) where you want to transfer your files and click the “Insert” button. Insert files

Now let's set up where the photos and videos taken with the phone camera will be saved by default. We will also install an SD memory card.

Let's go to Settings – About phone – Storage (Device memory) and select “Memory settings” as a place to save data.
