How to Increase Internal Memory Samsung Galaxy Ace & Install A2SD

If you are a user of the Samsung Galaxy Ace, there are high chances you could have encountered the low internal memory space error while installing applications or accessing regular functions/during regular usage in the phone. This happens as the internal memory space that’s available to use is so low that another application cannot run or install using the free memory available.

We have here, a neat and small way to go about changing this situation on your Ace smartphone. The only pre-requisite for this would be a memory card reader that can be connected to your computer, or an in-built SD card reader on your desktop/laptop computer.

Proceedure

  1. Download the MiniTool Partition Wizard Software and install it on your computer. Download Link
  2. Now, insert your microSD card into an empty microSD-SD Card and plug it into your computer through the card reader. Do note that you should not access the files of the memory card through the phone or its mass storage device mode and this has to be strictly followed.
  3. Now, copy all the files within the memory card and back it up locally on your computer. This is very important as during this process, all the data from the memory card will be erased while re-partitioning occurs.
  4. Now, open the MiniTool that was installed previously in Step 1 and select SD Card.
  5. Right click on the option and pick ‘Delete’. Upon confirmation, the contents of the memory card are now deleted.
  6. Now, right click and click on ‘Create New’. Here, choose FAT32 file type and allocate a good amount of memory space as you desire. Note that this space will be used to store the media and other files, so do allocate accordingly.
  7. Now, similarly, select ‘Create As: Primary’ directory as an ext2 partition and allocate some memory as you would need. Note that in this partition, all the necessary applications will be fitting in.
  8. Click the Apply button on the top-left corner of the application and insert the microSD card into your Ace smartphone.

That’s about it and now, you have as much memory as needed by you to install applications and have an increased internal memory setup on your Samsung Galaxy Ace smartphone.

  14. is this work for Samsung Galaxy Grand duos

  15. I managed to save the card by reformatting the whole card to Fat32, but didn’t gain anything in internal memory.

  16. Hey, i followed the instructions as a lot of people here and it messed up my micro sd card. Galaxy Ace says it is damaged and offers to format it, but won’t happen. Windows doesn’t recognize any card. Formatting with Minipartition tool to FAT 32 to undo all the mess won’t work either.

    Any suggests?

  23. Thanks for deleting my comment! I followed you both on Twitter and Google+ but because you make such things, today I’ll unfollow for ever!

  24. I do that, at my andromax i. and make NO effect……?

  25. i’m using galaxy pop (GT s5570). is it work for that.

  26. Man, what kind of article is this?! First of all, A2SD is no longer supported – please search for it in Google Play and read first sentence in description. Second: ext2 file system is not supported by stock ROMs. Maybe it was a good idea to add such thing in the article’s title!
