    Hi guys,

    I ordered a new ADATA Turbo microSD card that should be arriving today. It's a 32GB Class 10 card, so it should be very fast and be able to handle a lot of writes.

    I have two major questions regarding using my new card in my D1.

    1. What is the best way to migrate my current SD cards data to my new card? Should I simply do a direct copy from old card to new? Just playing it safe here by asking.

    2. If I wanted to setup a swapfile on my sdcard for my droid, what's the best way to do it that will give me the best possible performance? I've heard of apps like Swapper2 and such, but I just want to get your opinions first.

    Thanks guys,

    Alex

    Well as for question 1 a direct copy/paste of everything on the old sd card to the new one should be fine.

    Seems I remember something mentioned about some hidden files also needing to also be copied to avoid malfunctions. Anybody else recall that ?

    This is exactly what I want to be sure of.
