Why do apps automatically move back to the SD card even without updating?

Ask a Question

Model: Samsung Galaxy J7 Crown
Android version: 9
Whenever I move apps to the SD card to free up storage, they stay there for about a day, and then I’ll get the orange “Storage space running out; some functions may not work” notification and when I go to check, many of the apps have migrated automatically back to internal storage. I understand that this often happens when apps update, but there’s no way they’re updating that often. I have tried to change the SD card to the default install location too, but my phone seems to have that option disabled.
