    Hey,
    I've tried to set the install path for a program to the MicroSD and it said I can't install it on an external storage. How do I do this? I only have like 37 GB and I have to use some programs that are 2-5 GB each. I was thinking it is no problem to extend my storage with a MicroSD.

    Hey,
    It depends on the program. Some can be installed on external hard drives including SD cards, while others can't because they depend on system files that reside on the C drive.

    What file system is the SD card using?

    Oh, I didn't even check. exFat. So I'd better format it in NTFS now :) Thanks
