    Im thinking about doing a factory data reset. My phones been buggy for a while and think it is time to clean it up with the fdr. If i do so just curious about the micro sd card and the contents on it. Will i loose any music/photos on it ? Do I remove it prior to the reset so nothing gets affected.??? FYI I am NOT ROOTED !

    Good Day Folks !

    I don't believe it will erase the micro-sd, but I always unmount the card and remove it before a fdr just to play it safe.

    If you go into the My Files app, then sdcard0, under DCIM/Camera are all of your pictures. You should be able to copy / paste them to a directory you create on your sd card. Under My Files, extsdcard is the external. Figured you'd figure that out, but just in case! :)

    Also, for future reference, you can set the camera app to save to the sd instead of internal storage. It will create the same directory on extsdcard - DCIM/Camera.

    Edit: you could also just plug it into your computer, and copy/paste via Windows.

    And another suggestion for the future would be dropbox. Everytime I take a picture it's instantly and automatically uploaded to my dropbox cloud. Meaning it's instantly on my computer and I can delete it from my phone without worry. It's a great, free service I highly recommend! Can be downloaded on the Play store or online.

    And btw, if you do decide to use it....let me know!! I think I could get some sort of referral thing or something :D
