Default [Q] I need help better understanding the Kitkat SD card restristion

First, I want to say that I have unrooted version of this tablet on Version 4.4.2

After I was forced to up date I knew I would loose some function with my SD card. I thought the restriction were going to be if that app didn't create the file that app couldn't modify it. So today I had tried to create a folder with in a folder within a folder with ES File Manager and it was unable to do so. Is this apart of the regular restrictions? Is there a non root solution that doesn't involve taking the SD card to the computer and then creating the file structure with the app?
[Current:] AT&T Moto X - Rooted w/ Xposed Framework

Past:
[Retired] AT&T SG3 - Roms: CM, Para, AOSP
[Lost] AT&T SG2 - Roms: CM

Don't you dare refute, We all need Root!

Normal........ You need to use the native file manager (my files).

Thanks for the update on this. I guess the only way to use a non native file manager is root?
