  • Access to SD card from UWP app is detailed in the following online documentation : https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/files/access-the-sd-card

    // Get the logical root folder for all external storage devices.
    StorageFolder externalDevices = Windows.Storage.KnownFolders.RemovableDevices;            
    // Get the first child folder, which represents the SD card.            
    StorageFolder sdCard = (await)externalDevices.GetFoldersAsync()).FirstOrDefault();

    If sdCard is not null, then a SD Card is present
