    I was wondering: I have a Lumia 820 with a Kingston 8Gb SD card. I want to scale up to a 16Gb card but I already installed about 7Gb worth of apps in my current card. Can I copy and paste all folders to the new card or do I need to re-download everything?

    Thanks guys!

    No. All apps/games are heavily encrypted in your SD card. You have to download them again.

    Hi, does anyone know if a Samsung class 10 micro sd works well when installing apps and games on it? I want to buy a 32 or 64 gb one.

    Class 10 should be fine. Everything above class 4 will do the job.

    Hi guys, I've been using 8.1 for a while now and (although this post of mine is quite recent compared to yours), SD card support has improved on WP8.1.

    However there is one problem that I face even today that if I have to upgrade / replace my SD card with a new or another one a mere copy backup of files to computer 💻 and back to the new SD card doesn't help. While photos etc. are copied without issues, content like Music (which has user rights / certificates associated with them) are not reusable.

    I searched for an option everywhere for a solution which can "migrate" from old to new card, but I didn't find any.

    Please do let me know how best this problem can be resolved.
