Learn how to use storage settings on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. From this menu you can view the memory allocation for the memory card and USB as well as mount or unmount the SD card.

Device Memory

To view the memory allocation for your phone:

  • From the Settings screen, touch General > Storage. The Device memory displays as Total space, System memory, Used space, Cached data, Miscellaneous files, and Available space.

SD Card

  • Once a memory card has been installed in your device, the SD card memory displays as Total space and Available space.

Mounting an SD Card

  • Install an SD card. For more information, refer to "Insert Memory Card."
  • From the Settings screen, touch General > Storage.
  • Touch Mount SD card.

Unmounting an SD Card

  • From the Settings screen, touch General > Storage.
  • Touch Unmount SD card.
  • At the prompt, select OK to safely unmount the memory card.
  • Remove the SD card from the slot.

Note: Unmounting an SD card will stop some applications from functioning. Applications may not be available until you mount the SD card again.

Formatting an SD Card

When formatting an SD card you will want to backup your music and photo files that are stored on the card because formatting the SD card deletes all the stored data.

  • From the Settings screen, touch General > Storage.
  • Touch Format SD card and then touch Format SD card again on the warning screen.
  • Touch Delete all.

Note: The Format SD card option is only available when your SD card is mounted.
