Transferring MSP to a new tablet
#2
You typically can't cleanly move a library on one device to another if you were using an SD card path. This is because SD cards are mounted with unique paths (which started with Android 6.0), and write access is not granted to them without going through Google's folder picker. Having said that, MobileSheetsPro will attempt to preserve your folder structures if all files and folders that you imported into your library were relative to the storage location. If you unchecked the option to let MobileSheets manage your files, then things become more complicated. So there are two paths depending on whether you let MobileSheets manage your files. 

If MobileSheets was managing your files/folders:

1) First, go to Settings->Other Settings->Clear Library to remove all the existing files in the default storage location.
2) Next, go to Settings->Storage->Set MobileSheets Storage Location and pick the folder you want to use on the SD card (picking a custom folder will result in slower write speeds, so just be aware of that)
3) Now go to Settings->Backup and Restore->Restore Library from Backup, select your .msb file and uncheck the option to restore settings. It's very important that you uncheck that option so that the storage location isn't modified as part of the restore.

Once the restore completes, you should see that all of the files were extracted to the storage location and all of the files/folders should mimic what was on the other device.

If you managed your own files/folders:

1) Set the storage location to the folder you are using on the SD card. It's still important to do this if you are managing your own files so that MobileSheetsPro has write permissions. If you have files all over the SD card, then you need to set the root of the SD card as the storage location.
2) Go to Settings->Other Settings->Fix Broken File Paths. Use the automatic option. MobileSheetsPro should scan for all the missing files and hopefully find them under the storage location. This will repair the database and then everything should work. 

Let me know if that helps you get things up and running again.
