Hi Suresh and welcome to the forum! Winking Face

I'm sorry... There's no official way to move apps "directly" into REAL SD Card...

Unless if you ROOT, there's a way (for games textures only - such as additional files [1GB+] from BIG Games like Dead Space, NOVA etc.)...

For the app, I don't think there's any other way except above...

Regards,

Trubo

Re: Anyone know how to shift items from phone memory?

Thanks a lot Trubo :smileygrin:

But then how do we reduce items on phone memory. I've tried shifting camera pictures to memory card, but phone memory doesn't change. now it says 7 % (some 30-40 mb) remaining. hence, the phone lags a bit. Any solution for that?

Re: Anyone know how to shift items from phone memory?

Maybe you haven't move it (you just change the settings only)?

There's 2 option for you to move files (and search for trash items* XD)...

1. Use PC/Mac to manage your phone files via USB
-Connect the phone with the PC/Mac via USB cable

-Let the PC auto configures it's driver
-Open My Computer

-Open XPERIA sola (shows as Portable Device in the PC, not sure on Mac)

=If it doesn't show up, see http://talk.sonymobile.com/message/328564#328564

-Open Internal Memory/Storage
-Move DCIM folder

-to your SD card, main directory (as Removable Disk in My Computer)

=Not showing up? See above link...

2. Try using any file explorer (but I recommend ES File Explorer)...

-Open it will show you the Internal Memory directory (/sdcard)
-Tap and hold DCIM folder
-Click Move to

-Press the "Folder Up" button
-Press "/"

-Scroll all the way and tap "mnt" folder

-Tap "ext_card"

-Press OK

-Wait for the Moving of all your Photos and Videos to your REAL SD Card

Cheerio,

Trubo
