SD app short cuts disappear.

2012-03-13, 18:15 PM

This past weekend, I needed to copy some files from the phone's SD card to the PC.  I connected via USB, and everything went fine, but when disconnecting from the PC, all shortcuts to apps on the home page, that were for apps that were moved to the SD card disappeared.

Anythoughts as to how I can avoid this in the future?

Trying a different launcher, like Go Launcher EX or ADW, may help.

Also, if you have the room, keep your apps on the internal (non--removeable) storage area.  

I use Go Launcher EX, and I do have a few apps that I almost never use moved to the SD card.  Go seems to bring those icons--for the apps on the SD card--up every single time.

Hope this helps.
