SD Card as Adoptable Storage on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1

If you’re like me and got the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 you may have figured out that you can’t use your Micro SD card as internal. There’s not even an option to format as internal. Sure you can insert it on the phone’s SD Card slot it will be detected, you can move files there as external storage, but the phone will always store everything on the internal storage first. The SD card as external will always be a storage for pictures and videos but never apps. Prompting an annoying “storage is full” notification.

So before doing anything to your Micro SD Card, make sure that you have backed up your SD Card.

  1. On your command prompt, type “adb shell”
  2. Type “sm list-disks”
  3. Type “sm partition disk:179:64 private” (if you want the SD card to be used a full internal storage)
  4. Or Type “sm partition disk:179:64 mixed 50”  (if you want 50/50 split between adopted and regular)

ADB Shell


Got this info from Here’s how to configure adoptable storage on your S7 / S7 Edge – note I don’t have a S7 edge, but this works on my Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 Running Android Pie
