External data storage, JW Library, Windows 8.1

I am using a Windows tablet with windows 8.1 running. I have installed JW Library but there is limited space to store downloaded video's on the Tablet. I also have a 64 GB SD card for extra data storage.

 

What I'm wondering is can I store the downloaded files on the SD Card and still play them from within the JW Library app? When you want to install the app it asks permission to use external storage, so I guess it means it should be possible, or is this a future option?

Open "This PC"

Right Click on Videos, and select Properties

Click on Location Tab

Click Move, and select a folder where you want the videos eg D:\Videos.

This will now be your videos folder.  You can choose to move any files you have already there to the new location.

Open JW Library app, download a video, and it will download to a folder JWLibrary within your new location. ie your SD Card.

 

If you have already download videos with JW Library, you may want to delete them first, then re-download after you have changed your video folder location.

on windows phone 8.1, if you plan to have a new micro-sd, the apps and downloads can go to this extended memory too.

If you have already jw.lib installed on the main memory, delete it and install it again : it will be located on the micro-sd.

 

Last but not least, prefer a micro-sd memory class 10 or upper.

This is perfect!!!! That's why I like windows. If you want, you can adjust almost everything.

 

You don't have to remove the video's you already downloaded. If you change the destination folder, it will ask if you want to move the downloaded video's from JW Library to that folder. Simply say Yes. Although I do not know if the App will find them there. If not, you need to re-download the video's.

 

Thanks.

Just a side note. Although many tablets say they can handle up to 32Gb or 64Gb sd/micro sd cards they maybe able to handle up to 128 GB cards.In android the sd/micro sd cards are formatted with exFat, however if you format the cards with fat 32, you should be able to get double the size.

I know it worked on my old Dell pda too.

Windows tablets running win 8,1 maybe able to format cards in NTFS to get higher amounts of storage. Anyone experimented yet?

I remember that decades ago I was able to double my storage space by using 2 different windows programs. In DOS 5.0 I would open dosshell and save files there. I would also open windows and save files there. When adding the total disc space used it would be more than what the disc was. Sounds kind of similar.

NTFS : You Can do it... on my Asus vivotab note 8, my 64GB micro-sd is formatted on NTFS ^_^

And you can partition it...

 

I just offer a HP stream 7 to my sister who "work" on a foreign country. On the 64GB class 10 micro-sd, I put the CD-ROM of WLibrary and all the videos available on jw.org. Only 15gb used and the 32gb of the main memory are able to run more quickly the jw.library and jw bible reader for w8. Good stuff for less than 110€

If an admin could merge... ^_^

[edit] you can partition it... but windows 8 only read the first partition on removable memory (USB, micro-sd). That's why the partitioning option is not available on the Ms tools to manage hard drives... no need. But others tools can do the job if you want to play :D
