You need to rely on third party apps to transfer your app data or particular app to SD card. As mentioned above i do agree with the solution given by tomesguide. So refer above steps and get your problem resolved.

Thanks

Stuck on moving to SDcard

I have Alcatel 5054D with a nonrooted Lollipop (5.1.1) on board. I tried to move some apps to SDcard by pressing "Move to SDcard". Some of these apps moved successfully and some stuck in "Moving" state. Uninstall button also stays inactive like the moving process is still working. I tried to reinstall these stuck apps, but they still show "Moving" instead of "Move to SDcard/telephone". Clearing cache, wiping /cache, switching default storage in both ways and rebooting the phone doesn't help either. I do not understand if apps are still in the phone memory or on the card.

Link2Sd doesn't work on non-rooted phones, it simply opens system app window.

Any suggestions?

It depends on the smartphone to smartphone actually. Every smartphone have different way of changing storage phone to SD card. Even i faced same issue with my HTC desire 601. And my bad luck it actually does not have any option to make my SD card as my default storage.

Otherwise, you can go to setting and storage option where you can change your default location easily.

Best Of Luck :)
