    I've reset my Lumia because i had some problems with my Microsoft Mail
    Before resetting it i moved all of my apps to my SD card
    after resetting i tried to get my apps back from the SD card but the mobile tells me that the apps on the SD card where installed from another Lumia and must be erased

    How could i get my apps back without downloading them again
    or
    where are the apps on the SD card stored to get them then install them again

    THANKS FOR READING MY QUESTION

    If you changed your Microsoft Account info when you ran new setup, you gave up ownership of all those Apps. They belong to the old Microsoft Account.

    Yeah! It act as a safe gate.
    To prevent your phone.
    Or in other words from viruses or hacking.
    That's y it ignores the SD card app.
    To overcome any possible harmful data.
    It's a great feature but yes your situation is understandable..
    But it has no solution other than letting those app erase and reinstallation of all those from store.

    If this works, this is a great idea! It would allow you to reinstall an app that is no longer in the store (if you had downloaded it manually and saved it to your microSD card).
