About SD card data transfer

It’s very common to transfer data from one SD card to another nowadays, especially when you get a newer SD card with more capacity. Take Android phone as an example, there must be a lot of apps, photos, music files as well as other data on your old SD card and some people ask if it is possible to copy SD card to SD card without computer. Well, in this situation, you may have to transfer documents to your phone first then paste them to the new SD card. However, this requires enough space on the phone and it takes much time.

As far as I know, it’s not that appropriate when there are apps installed because of some invisible files, etc. Thus, a professional clone tool will be recommended here - AOMEI Backupper which helps you move data perfectly.
