Re: Apps moved to SD card still reserve space in internal storage

Thanks. While it's not the answer I was hoping for, it does at least solve half the problem.

But the app size info must be looked into. It reports the size as if the entire app had been moved including its OBB's.

5.0.2 Lollipop Storage Data SD? App2Sd not Working!!!

Why is App Info showing App on SD-Card.
But in reality it use Phone Storage?
Im talking about 480 MB one file.
It happened to all additional downloaded big Files of Apps so far.
Not even moved to SD.
And if still the big file stayed on the Phone.

Not all apps can be moved to SD and if it can be moved then it may only move a small amount of data

Thats right.
But my Question was why the Phone Settings telling me that AppData is stored on SD-Card.
BUT ITS NOT, and i wasnt yet moving to SD-Card.
Happened to all Apps that Downloads big Files to them Self from AppStore.

Android 5.0 - Moving internal memory to SD card issue

After the recent update to Android 5.0, Apps were enabled to move to SD card, What i have noticed is that even after moving the App and App Data to SD card, Internal Phone memory  seems to getting used also, i see that App and App data appers to in SD card in Applications settings UI, atually when i clear the data of tthe App, Internal memory is clear, which show the apps are not actually moving to SD card.

 

If anyone seen same issue, its likely that Sony has missed to big bug before releasing
