Customer Question
Samsumg S5 is running out...
Samsumg S5 is running out of space. I have moved every app that allows me to over to the SD card which has tons of space. Is there a way to force an app onto the SD card if it doesn't give me the option in the applications settings?

Available today if you have any ideas on my question. Really want to add a few apps and need more space.

Sorry for the delay, but the simple answer to your question is, no. There isnt a way to force an app to be installed onto the SD card, either manually or by default. If you are running out of space, I would suggest either deleting apps that you are no longer using or try and back up all your pictures and videos that you can to a computer or cloud storage to free up space.

Another thing to look at is this, have you ever done a factory reset of the device since you have had it? Just like a computer, they will need to be wiped to clear out background clutter that could be slowing down the phone as well.

Thanks, ***** ***** what I thought and all my photos and videos are already on the sd card.
Android Device Expert: Ronald Brock,
 replied 4 months ago

yea, I have the same problem with my galaxy phones as well, to be honest. I would recommend a full backup, wipe the device and reinstall what apps you will need. You will find that will make things work a lot better for a while, but after some time, you will have to do it again, roughly about every year or so.

If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, please take a few minutes and provide me a rating of at least 3 stars, as that is how we are compensated for our time here on JustAnswers. Thanks!
