    The app you show is definitely not the stock 4.4.4 app. However, on mine the semi-circle shows on the left. I rotate it up until I see the symbol for SD card. Tap it then select SD card as the destination and it works fine. Much simpler than shown. Moto G gen 2.

    Does anyone know how to do the same for Android Lollipop? I don’t see that option anywhere.
