Hi All,

I'm trying to do a full backup of an N5 but I can't find the nandroid backups anywhere. I can see them from Clockworkmod (though it's called '1970-03-' for some reason) but I've used xplorer and ES File Explorer to look in /SDCARD/ClockWorkMod/ and the folder is empty not even a backup folder. I've tried doing a system search for the '1970-03-' I mentioned it's named at as in CWM but no luck.

I want the file so I can download it to my pc along with other backups and make further backups as i am on a custom rom (omnirom) now.. How do I find where the backup is saved? I need to move it to my pc and delete it to make further backups. Also, Can i delete it from that location and can i save it in the regular clockworkmod backup folder location for further backups? I am losing about 4.17 gb data for that backup and want a simple backup without all the apps and data that wouldnt be so large.

Thanks in advance.
