Slow storage can often be a bottleneck that hampers your Android device's performance. SD-Booster provides a solution to the problem. This app lets you set up cache for each detected storage device, including an external microSD card and internal storage. SD-Booster requires root access, so it only works on rooted Android devices.

Using the app is as easy as it gets. When the app is running, it automatically detects and lists all available storage devices. You can then specify cache for each storage device, or set up cache size for all devices globally. The recommended values are 512, 1024, and 2048. The optimal cache size depends on many factors, and the best way to find out the ideal value for your specific device is to try different settings. One way to find the optimal cache size for an SD card is to use the SD Tools to benchmark the card with various cache settings. SD-Booster also sports a monitoring feature which checks all configured storage devices for errors and fixes the detected problems.
