SD card very slow on delete and write

2020-03-11, 5:12 AM
Hi, My old sd card: SanDisk ultra 128 gb 10 A1 SDCX1. My new sd card: SanDisk extreme plus 128gb 3 A2 SDXC 1 V30. With the old SD card like with the new, I'm having to veeery slow write and delete performances. I thought that it was linked to the SD card itself but not. Same performances. Issue occured on Android 9 AND now in Android 10. SD card is +- 45% filled with pictures and videos. Anyone an idea about how to fix this speed issue please? Thanks,
Solved! See the solution

Hi dracou,

 

Write speed and transfer speed of the SD card is typically slower than the speed rate of the phone. I'd like to understand what's happening, can you share more details what files and  how do you delete these files from your SD card? How long it takes to finish the specific task? Let me know. Thanks.

 

Best regards,
Rich

Hi Rich, For instance I transfer a picture from phone to SD card (screenshot, edited picture,...): It takes up to 60 sec Also: I delete a picture from SD card. It takes up to 20 sec, if the delete works because sometimes it doesn't Please check YouTube screen record. Video is not public. https://youtu.be/A460C51WZF4 I've had the issue with Android 9 and thought Android 10 would resolve it but it's worse. Thanks for the follow-up and feedback. Much appreciated Dracou

Is the SD card formatted as Internal or Portable?

Good question.

I have no idea about how to see it on the phone.

In fact, I put my new SD card in my g7+ (and old too by the way) and the phone created a folders' structure. 

Then I put the SD card in my macbook and transferred my old pictures etc. from old SD card to new one through my macbook.

 

It seems that portable is readable by other devices and internal is always encrypted and cannot be decrypted on any other device.

Thus I conclude it's portable?

Yes it is portable. I don't like using SD cards as Internal/Adoptive memory.

 

 

I'm on windows but is there a program on your Mac that can check the SD card like one windows we have,"Scandisk" to check drives cards/USB storage devices.

 

 

Also see if this little File manager does a better job from the Google Playstore,

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cxinventor.file.explorer&hl=en_GB

 

Also it's not Lenovo/Motos fault but Google Android is getting left behind by the speed of development of the increased sizes of SD cards and some of these so called,"Ultra/Extreme" cards don't seem to want to play nice.

 

 

If you have an older smaller SD card like say 16GB/32GB try a test on that for speed.

OK, maybe it's the too large size the problem. Even if I do't remember having had this problem with android 9 on moto g7+ during its first months...

 

So... What do you suggest me to do with this CX File Explorer? I downloaded it... then what? ;-)

 

thanks,

Friends,

 

I checked with a colleague.

A screenshot transferred from internal to sd storage with Google Photos app takes one minute, while it takes one moment (second) with Files app.

Issue is not Motorola related, nor SD card, but Google Photos app related.

 

Good day to all,
