[Q] ES File Explorer permission denied when copying to OTG flash drive

I've been getting this error whenever I try to copy anything onto a flash drive:
"EACCES (Permission denied)"

It used to work just fine before, so I don't know why it isn't working now.

The flash drive is EXFAT formatted. Phone is rooted, running ElementalX with EXFAT support ticked and Stickmount Pro. Reading any file still works.

Any ideas as to what happened?

What location are you browsing to to get to the flash drive? Is it the latest elemental?

I believe so, as long as the kernel does as well. I know I've been able to write to this drive before, just haven't done so in a while.

Anyone any ideas? I am having the same problem, exact same scenario using rooted stock on nexus 5.

My solution to NEXUS 5 can write to OTG USB pendrive
Ok, that's that I did, and it worked ( 4 or moure hours testing various things)

I used a Corsair Voyager GO 64 gb with NTFS filesystem.
My Nexus 5 is rooted.
I installed Chainfire "StickMount". So we can mount out USB pendrive to /sdcard/ubsStorage/sda1 No need to be PRO app.
I installed Paragon "paragon NTFS&HFS". Open it, and will ask to fix SELinux policies to Permisive. So Root Explorer can see now /Data/Media/ClockWorkmod/backup
I installed Jrummy Apps inc. "Root Explorer". I will copy, for example /Data/Media/ClockWorkmod/backup to /sdcard/ubsStorage/sda1 whithout any problems.
Don't forget to unmount USB drive before disconnecting it, go to StickMount and choose unmount

ES FILE EXPLORER WILL SAY "No space" "Error" or similar
Worked for me!

I'm happy with my investigation. I used Root Explorer in the past, and now it's useful again.
Sorry about my english, not perfect.
ENJOY!
