Re: Unable to transfer apps to SD card since upgrading to Android 6

If you format the SD card as portable then answer is NO. If you reformat it as Internal then answer is YES.

Re: Unable to transfer apps to SD card since upgrading to Android 6

It's worth reading the advice here, particularly the points related to potential drawbacks of adopting SD cards. 

 

http://www.androidcentral.com/inside-marshmallow-adoptable-storage

 

The points about potential reductions in speed and the implications of failure of an adopted card seem are a concern.

 

I haven't been able to find out whether there's a limit on the size of card that can be adopted. My Moto G 3rd Gen works well with a non-adopted 64GB card, I don't want to adopt the card until

Note that I've also heard, via a question at amazon.co.uk, from a Moto G 3rd Gen user who was unable to adopt a 64GB SD card which suggests adoption is only possible for 32GB cards or smaller. See this http://goo.gl/XHrvN9

This helped me too

Re: Unable to transfer apps to SD card since upgrading to Android 6

I have enormous problems with microsd used as internal storage.

The apps installed on SD disappear randomly, the SD card itself sometimes disappear and I must reboot, the phone hang-up. This is a big big issue for me and for the very first time I'm thinking to change my moto G. I need more space than the 8gb I have as internal storage, but while before the upgrade a was able to move apps to external microsd now to do so I must format the card as internal, but the feature is broken or my phone is broken.

I have tried to different microsd card, a Kingston and a Samsung evo +, both 32gb, it was a disaster.

I have also faced this issue. And I found the reason that it was due to unexpected removal of sd card from the phone for some reason I can't remember now. While using a sd card as internal, someone shouldn't remove the sd card. One formatted as internal the sd card should not be removed ever. So I will suggest you to reformat your sd card as internal and then not to remove sd card ever. By the way what class sd card are you using?

I have never removed the SD cards from the phone after formatting.

I've tried a Kingston SDCA3/32gb and a Samsung evo+/32gb, they are bot SD HC I, class 10

Then I think there is something wrong which is causing these. Have you checked in safe mode?
