I have an Android tablet and I would like to transfer all current apps and files to a new blank Micro SD card as a backup. I am a newbie and can't find a screen to do this. I can find how to have future data stored on the card instead of the internal storage drive. Should I be able to do this from settings or thru my security app (AVG Pro).

I have the same question as den3200nis.
I bought a 64 GB sd-card and its working well, except for the issue of transferring apps and other files. The function of the tablet itself doesnt work well, only a portion of some apps can be transferred to the micro sd card.

Will the transfer via a computer work better, for apps and all files?
Or do I need to root my tablet? (Which Im weary to do because of the risks, especially of bricking the tablet. My tablet is a Samsung tab 4, 7.0)

Oh and another thing, to transfer via computer do I need to remove my micro sd card(with an adapter), or can the micro sd-card stay in the tablet?

It is always recommended to choose a PC and not an Android app to transfer files between the phone and SD card as it preserves the timestamps of the data transferred. Otherwise, the order of data may get messed up.

The same you can do with apps like ES File Explorer or Solid Explorer File Manager as well, but it will jumble up the order of you data, probably in the order it is copied/ moved, making it hard for you to look up for a file.
