Transferring files to an SD card on your Samsung Galaxy device is an essential skill to learn. Doing so allows you to expand your phone’s storage capacity, ensure your files are backed up and secure, and conveniently transfer files between devices.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to copy files to an SD card in your Samsung Galaxy:
Step 1: Access the Files App
- Unlock your Samsung Galaxy device.
- Locate the “Files app” (also called “My Files” on some devices) on your home screen or app drawer and tap on it to open.
Step 2: Select the Files or Folders to Copy
1. In the My Files app, navigate to the folder where the files or folders you want to copy are stored (such as “Internal storage” or “Documents”).
2. To select a single file or folder, tap and hold on it until you see a checkmark on the item. To select multiple items, continue to tap on all the files or folders you want to copy.
Step 3: Copy the Selected Files or Folders
1. Once the files or folders have been selected, tap on Copy at the bottom of the screen.
Doing so will allow you to choose the destination folder where you want to paste the copied items.
Step 4: Choose the SD Card as the Destination
1. Navigate to your SD card by tapping on “SD card” or in this case, “USB storage” since we’re using an SSD.
2. Choose or create a folder on the SD card where you want to save the copied files.
3. Tap “Done,” “Paste,” or “Copy here” (depending on your device) to complete the file transfer.
The selected files have now been copied to the SD card on your Samsung Galaxy device. You can access these files within the Files app by navigating to the folder where you saved them on the SD card.
