Yes, you can transfer data from an old SD card to a larger one.

There are various ways to transfer data from an old SD card to a larger one. The most common methods are manually copying and pasting the data and cloning the old SD card to a new and larger one.

Copying and pasting is the manual method used to move data from one SD card to another. Copy the desired files from the smaller SD card and paste them one at a time onto the larger one.

  • Remove the SD card from your devices.
  • Insert it into the SD card reader, and connect it to your Windows computer.
  • Access the SD card from Windows File Explorer.
  • Drag your files and drop them into your computer.
  • Eject the old SD card and connect your new larger SD card with the reader.
  • Drag and drop the files from your PC to the new larger SD card.

Another way is using professional cloning software to help you clone the data from the old SD card to a new and larger one. Under such circumstances, professional SD card backup software - EaseUS Todo Backup, comes to help.
