How it works:
Linking apps
Link2SD uses a secondary partition on your SD card and uses it as another segment of internal storage.
Link2SD moves apk, dalvik-cache (.dex), lib and internal data files into this partition, which the OS mounts on boot, and creates a symbolic link in the original location.
This retains the file structure that the system expects but with the bulk of the data moved to the SD card.

Linking obb and external data folders of apps and games
On devices that have emulated SD card, obb and external data folders are located in the internal storage, not in the external (real) SD card.
Link2SD moves these folders to the 1st or the 2nd partition of your external SD card (depending on your selection) and with the bind option of the mount command remounts the file hierarchy at external SD card while it is still available at the original location.

What you need:
Linking apps
- root permission
- second partition on SD card

You should have two partitions on your SD card and both should be primary.

You need to use a non-FAT file system (ext2, ext3, ext4 or f2fs) on your 2nd partition in order to link app's private data files. Because the FAT file system (FAT16, FAT32 or exFAT) does not support UNIX file ownership or permissions and will cause a security breakdown of app's private files.
Link2SD does not create the second partition, you need to create it yourself.

Linking obb and external data folders of apps and games
- root permission

Second partition on SD card is optional, folders can be moved to the 1st or 2nd second partition of the SD card.

Link2SD also provides native App2SD feature of Android OS. It can move any user apps to SD card (force move), with batch moving capability.

Link2SD is a free (ad supported) app, you can upgrade to Link2SD Plus to remove ads and get additional features.

requires following permissions on your android device.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

delete all app cache data
Allows the app to free phone storage by deleting files in the cache directories of other applications. This may cause other applications to start up more slowly as they need to re-retrieve their data.

measure app storage space
Allows the app to retrieve its code, data, and cache sizes

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read Usage data
Provides access to device usage history and statistics. Usage data is aggregated into time intervals: days, weeks, months, and years.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

install shortcuts
Allows an application to add Homescreen shortcuts without user intervention.

    USE WITH CAUTION. This is a SUPERB application, but I encountered a problem. After a couple of years, the 2d partition (ext4) of my external sd card failed, leaving links in internal storage to a corrupted external sd partition. I could not unlink them and had to reset a 5 year old tablet to factory defaults. Retrospect Solution: Do a full nandroid backup of your device BEFORE using this app so you can recover the device when the micro sd card fails. All sd cards have a LIMITED life span.

  2. Ring Neck-avatar

    apk Hello dev, I just installed android 10 on my redmi note 4. Also installed magisk. Root is obtainted. I can edit files using root file manager. But link2sd cannot find root in android 10. It gives error when converting user apps to system app - "Failure mount system not on proc mount"

  3. David Ansell-avatar

    plus In a rooted phone it let's you move some native internal apps to sd card and free up internal memory. You can leave card in fat32 format so if phone dies you can take card out to access. AN altenative to reformatting sd card in Android 6 as internal me extension. Works on my Samsung s5 mini Android 6.1 Recommended in rooted phone. Brilliant app and works well, ads are not too intrusive. Thanks to developers. I advise don't use the "integrate into system" function as program disappears.

  4. Lee Broderick-avatar

    ohne root Bought pro licence but can't use the app as my phone isn't rooted. Now that I look more closely, this is stated in the 'about' section but it should be bold and at the top. Most people, me included, cannot use this app.

  5. David Galbraith-avatar

    David Galbraith


    anleitung The text in the GUI is crowded together so it gets hidden so you can't even see what the damn thing says. Seems like no one provides a functional partition app on Google since this app is so popular, I even brought the pro version, you think that include the ability to make a partition. Also requires root access no trac phone can be rooted so this leaves a lot of us hanging because many many many people have Tracfones

  6. Vince Silver-avatar

    app Pointless app for my tablet (Samsung Tab E,) all it does is send me to the app info tab to move apps from internal storage to the sd card. I can do that myself. I wanted an app that I could move multiple apps at the same time. Moving individual apps is a waste of my time.

  7. Jesse Black-avatar

    hat keine root-rechte bekommen After trying all the apps that do this , a while back this one didnt work . But its fixed now for androud 6+ . After coming back to it , it really does have some nice features that the others dont . The option to auto clear cache at a chosen time interval is awesome ! Phone will stay fast and i have to do nothing ! That alone makes this app above the rest .

  8. Para Bina-avatar

    failure 6 Are you trojan horsing me? Good thing i have access detection measure and identify your apps lurking behind me for unnecessary information and execution. Becareful guys, this app is looking for sensitive data and its not for ads preferences. Unless you know how to counteract and immobilized this, better don't use this app. Uninstall and reported.

  9. MrOlde Gt-avatar

    alternative Why this not working on my phone (my phone is SONY Xperia Z) why I can't move my data game to sd card?? Can you explain?

  10. Adam Kautz-avatar

    4pda Although the process of moving an app is a bit convoluted (tap app name from list > move to SD card > storage > change > SD card > move) it gets the job done for all the games I tried it with as well as some other apps. However some apps it stated were movable (e.g. Google Photos, Amazon Kindle) were actually not movable. On initial startup it also takes a few minutes on my Galaxy S7 to list all the apps on my phone sorted in the order I designate (i.e. total size / movable). Nevertheless, despite these issues it was able to free up so much memory on my internal storage I gave it 5 stars.

    I use this app to convert user apps to system apps on my rooted Android 5.0 and it works perfectly. It only requires a reboot, and a simple reboot worked. If this developer is active, at least put the warning on startup, saying "Use this app at your own risk as it is easy to brick your device if used incorrectly."

  12. Mina Morcose Farage-avatar

    Mina Morcose Farage


    very good application but after use it up to 3 month I got boot loop and problem to cache and I had to reset the phone and it happend before so the idea is if you make a lot of changes this app will make a big bugs ..... conclusion this app is very good app but it lake safety programming so if any thing occur this app will conflict the files my suggestion is audit this to make more safety measure and failsafe if any thing happen and put more repair and more inteligant tools I buyed the app

  13. Petri Hyvönen-avatar

    I do not get a license to operate, always complaining that error contacting the Licensing server. probably i should use that old plus version but it can't be found anywhere. not even in my own google play app section. some years ago it worked fine. how can i do this? I purchased the product about 5 years ago.

  14. Ricardo Castaño-avatar

    Ricardo Castaño


    Amazing and very useful app when your phone is rooted; I also like how easy to use it is. I have a request for the developers: as you know, an app installed on the SD card is moved back to internal storage after an update. Can you add an option to auto move to SD card after an update if the app was in the SD card?

  15. DarkTPman-avatar

    Hand down the best App2SD app in Google Play. Because of this app, i managed to transfer most of my app data and free up a bunch of space on my internal storage. But keep in mind that this app is pretty difficult (and risky) to use especially for those newbie in android tech. So before you use this app, be sure to do some research on this app or else you might ended up bricking your device

  16. Sankalp Sharma-avatar

    Any random number of my linked apps get deleted every month. Yesterday, it deleted my gboard and camscanner. And then, there only remains an empty 0 byte file in place of the linked (but deleted) apps' folder with the same name as that the folder had. eg: (0B) for gboard and com.intsig.camscanner-2 (0B) for camscanner. Also, when I reinstall those apps, and relink their app, lib, and dex, an I/O error occurs. My partition format is ext2. 0B are undeletable.

  17. barak dopama-avatar

    Doesn't work on Android 10, I always get a mounting error (maybe due to magisk) please fix it in a future update.

  18. David Björk-avatar

    Very nice app! I only have one question. What happens if the sd card get removed or the sd card get broken? I understand that all data and apps that is moved get lost, but does this affect to the android itself in the tablet? If I only move for example games that installed from google play...only these games gets lost and nothing else happens?

  19. Soheil-avatar

    I can assure people out there, that this is the best link app out there. I have tried and paid for other link apps, but they all disappoint me. I just keep coming back to this app. Really user friendly and effective. I purchased the plus key. Don't waste your time. Download Link2SD and Aparted (for partitioning) and you are set to go! 5+ star!

  21. Myk Hydro-avatar

    Very useful app thank you! I have one issue that I hope you can solve for me. When I integrate an app update into system, I lose that app's data/settings and have to reconfigure it every time. Thanks in advance for any solution. Like perhaps future Link2SD versions could track/backup/rename the /data/app_name folder as well.

    Needs Root access Phone needs to be rooted Also the paid app is not compatible because it requests update So it does not remove ads on Android pie

  23. Rezza-avatar

    Everytime I reboot the phone, some linked apps lose their dex and lib that makes them can't run. So, I have to reinstalled it to make it run again. Help me. Please fix this as soon as possible. Thanks.

    Only due to this App i was able to install hell lot of applications on my mobile without worrying about internal storage getting filled up. Only thing you need to make sure is to have Good performance SD card, else there will be Lag for Linked Apps.

  26. Solomon Roller-avatar

    When you get the partitions setup properly, It's awesome!

  27. Tse-Min Lin-avatar

    Best app to free internal memory. Need to root the device before proper use. I am using ext4 on the 2nd primary partition of the SD card. Card formatted on PC with Win10. Do not use KingRoot to root your device!

  28. Hanry Satrio-avatar

    Perfectly functioning except for clearing cache. Not all apps caches are cleared. Still leaving so much caches behind. Need to clear cache from Settings again. Even the latest version still not clearing all caches.

    Only works on root. Root on 2020 moder phones is basically is too much trouble to ask.

  30. Ris Del-avatar

    Some apps can not be move to sd because some apps are designed to be installed on internal memory only. So sometimes you are stuck installing them to internal. All you have to do, last resort, is format your sd as an extension of internal storage to solve the problem.

  31. A Google user-avatar

    Excellent app, useful, trustful. I've been using it for years and hasn't ever dissapointed me!!! I'm a real person very satisfied, not a bot. 100% rexomended (mistake on purpose to give you confidence that I am real) five stars

    I am using this app since 2014 i know it requires root permissions but it should be on the top of description so all users are aware of it before the installation as most of the users won't go deep in the description . 2stars less for that.

    But this app is not transfering the apps to your external SDcard. It is only moving the app to the phone storage identified as SdCard0. I thought it will transfer the app to External SDCard freeing the phone and internal storage fully.

    If you look deep into the description it says that root access is a requirement. Not faulting the app for needing to but the description should have made this WAY more obvious.
