Internal storage

is there an explanation why apps automatically install themselves on the sd card if it is formatted as internal memory?
Usually the apps do not work the
I try to move them to internal storage but that doesn’t work.
It took me a long time to see why new installed apps don’t work
sorry for my bad english

The use of “install as internal memory” is not recommended and gives various problems depending on your device !

There is a risk that you will lose data when you format the SD card and start again with an SD card which you clearly install as external storage.

To solve this once before I got a OTG USB Drive to copy all my stuff off the device. (The /e/ system is not affected.) To make life simple, I got a fresh SD card and started again with my SD card as external storage and copied my stuff back as required.
