If you have any of the Samsung Galaxy S7 variants, you have at least 32GB of memory space to store your music and other files on your device. For some users, though, this amount of space is not much and they easily use it all up by storing their music collections. If that is the case with you, you may want to move your music to an SD card on your Galaxy S5, Galaxy S7, or any other device you have.

Since the SD cards come in all shapes and sizes, you can easily store from a few hundred music tracks to over a thousand tracks on a good sized SD card. Also, it is pretty easy to move your music from the internal storage of your device over to an SD card. The following teaches exactly how you can do it on your phone.

Here’s how to move music to SD card on an Galaxy S5 or S7:

Step 1. Swipe up on the homescreen of your device and tap on the app that says My Files. The app will open.

  1. If you are moving a large number of music tracks from your device over to your SD card, the transfer process will take several minutes to finish. If you are only moving a few songs, you should be done in a few minutes.
  2. Since what you are performing is moving the files, you do not need to delete the files from their original location as the files have been moved and not copied to the specified destination.
