Default Can't restore nandroid backup from internal SD card

Hey everyone..
Last night I got into some trouble while I was restoring a backup from internal SD card... but it says no files found...
Using philz touch recovery 6.00.8 and tried with 6.15.9 also.. I can see that backup in my file explorer.. but not in recovery.. I mean in the backup and restore option...

Have you tried copying it to external sd card and restore from there...Also I would not recommend keeping backups on internal sd card in-case anything goes wrong and it gets wiped.

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

Yes I had one other backup in ext SD card so I got away with it...
But the issue is recovery is not detecting it while it is present in my internal SD card..
Can someone shed some light on this???

You should have said that in your first post try posting in PhilZ thread you may get a answer from the man himself

Edit: Just thought I so a post somewhere about PhilZ not detecting cwm backups in internal sd card if it was not in a particular folder because of the 0 folder issue not 100% sure on this but it may help

I noticed 1 more thing
The ownership in both the cases is different... the one with neat rom is from ext SD card
And the other one from inter sd card

Edit solved it... I changed the path from data/media/0 to data/media
And then mount data...
Previously data was not mounted that's why recovery was not detecting the backed up file...

PLZ close the thread...
