    1. Hi Aloknand

      i don't have A58, make first primary partition EXT2 file system and make other according to your memory card size is less than 2GB, select file system FAT. If it’s more than 2GB, select FAT32.

  50. Mr. Abhishek sharma,
    as i have installed the partition tool and done with the 1st step, i have installed the link2sd app in my phone and done with recopying all the things back to mem card, but as i set my card in the phone, it says that i have unsupported file sys in the card and that lead to format of my card. but when i open the link2sd app in the phone, it is not even recognising the card, it says no card found, then what to do sir..

    1. is your phone rooted?

      then First make Primary by EXT2 file system then after make other partition according to your card free space ( If your memory card size is less than 2GB, select file system FAT. If it’s more than 2GB, select FAT32)

  51. hi , i have samsung gt s5570 android 2.3 with root and i have done exactly what u hav mentioned. I have made a partition of 6gb in 8gb memory card and rest unallocated space for added memory to phone. I was already using link2sd app to move heavy application to phone but even after making partition to memory card my internal memory shows low space. I have moved all application to phone. for eg facebook takes 13 mb from internal memory and when i delete this app then i got 13 mb back to my phone internal memory but when i reinstall this app then again my 13 mb reduces from phone internal memory then where is this second partition of memory card working. pls help

    1. Hi Anuraj

      you did not make right partition. Please read steps then do it

      you can use second method also

      Good day

    2. hi abhishek,
      I made the right partition no problem with that and later I came to know that what exactly I have to do with link2sd app. Actually I was not creating a link of any app initially I had only moved the apps to sd card only but later when i found this linking option my problem resolved.
