SD Card Switch

I currently have a C5-00. I had a 2GB Sd Card on it till now, I bought a 4GB SD today but I can't seem 2 get my apps and themes by restoring backup. I have lots of symbian and JAVA App-s installed on to my SD Card. How am I supposed to keep all my Apps and Games and still change my SD Card.

@lonT1

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

I am assuming that you have already enabled "Show hidden & system files" on your PC, copy contents of smaller card to PC desktop and back on to larger card.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Show-hidden-files

 

Windows 7 - Open (My) Computer Press the Alt key > Click Tools > Folder Options…Click the View tab, select Show hidden files and folders, and uncheck Hide protected operating system files.

 

Although I have never experienced issues with a succession of larger memory cards, you could always create an image backup of the memory card using Drive Snapshot and then restore that to the new larger card.

 

Happy to have helped forum with a Support Ratio = 42.5

Re: SD Card Switch

I did a full copy paste using linux (I can see even system files), gave booth cards the same label and I got my Symbian Apps But not my JAVA Apps. What Now? Can you tell me where the downloaded jar files are stored on the filesystem of the phone? I have full filesystem access to both phone memory and memory card. (I can extract the phone's firmware if I want to).

Re: SD Card Switch

After copying the contents of the old card to the new card, turn the phone off, insert the new card, turn the phone on and you're done.

Re: SD Card Switch

Re: SD Card Switch

If they are installed on the phone, then the card shouldnt matter, sorry, but I've not experienced any trouble whatsoever trasnferring cards. If you have enabled showing hidden files, everything in your old card is already in the new one.
