I undid mine. I found it more troublesome when my computer can't read the drive as well. I need it to transfer data back and forth. I'll stick with it as an external storage for now. hopefully Sony will change their mind in the next update. thanks for the info though.

I agree, the SD Card can't work as a mass storage anymore on Sony devices, but I'm used to that as I didn't even had this option before MM on my Nvidia Shield Tablet/HTC One M9. Seems it's an extra feature made by Sony after it was removed by google after Honeycomb (if I'm not mistaken with the release).
Anyway I use FTP (fileszilla apk) + wifi connection, or ADB push that seems to be the fastest way to copy over the USB cable (command example: adb push "E:\my folder\0PJAIMG.zip" /sdcard/0PJAIMG.zip
to copy whole folder use: adb push "E:\folder_name" /sdcard/folder_name).
here is another user feedback:

The Storage option (to move the app and data to the SD Card) has disappeared after the 6.0.1 upgrade.
How do I now move a newly installed app and data to my SD card?

the option to transfer the app to sd card also depends on the developer of the app. you can observe this by going to your installed apps. settings>apps>storage used. you will observe that some app have this option , others have not.

Hi so I have a similar problem. I get how you use the sd cards is slightly different. My problem is everytime I go to format the SD card it starts and stops at 20% and I cannot use the SD card on my Xperia X performance.

Sony!!!! Please let us, your customers decide what we want to do with the SD card. You render the Z3C useless with only 16gb internal memory. We need the SD card for apps. It is bad enough that camera is less useable that my 5 year old Nokia.

i have no idea in regards to Android 7 Development Edition. the Sony Android 6 does not allow mounting SD as internal. However, I believe the process is within setting, storage. From what you have mentioned, you might need to have a low level format of the SD card.
i think you can find some information on how to do a low level format on the SD card from the internet. You might want to call support as well.
