    SD app storage and app transferring

    I'm currently using the 4gb sd card that comes with the phone. Looking to purchase a 16gb sd card soon.

    Question: What happens when I want to transfer the apps stored on the 4gb card to the 16gb card? How do I transfer them? Do I just drag and drop all files to the new sd card?

    Any ideas would be helpful...

    Yeah, I did the same thing a few days ago... Got my 16GB card in via Amazon.. created a folder on my Windows 7 Desktop... Copied the entire contents of the 4GB to that folder...

    Then dragged all that to my new 16GB in a usb card reader...

    Everything worked fine...

    If that didn't work though, my next plan of action was to use a drive mirroring software, but I guess google isn't storing any proprietary files or anything in the boot sector or some hidden place that makes drive mirroring a necessity.

    I guess it would be dumb for them to do that anyway... given they've made it accessible for users to yank out.
