I hope they damn well put the access back in the next release.

Try using a file manager to move things around

I've read its a problem created by Google, so a lot of the File Explorers do not work.

Not ideal, but the on board one does the job.

Cheers!

I just bought an LG G3 which came with KK 4.3.x and upgraded to KK 4.4.2. I am using the LG File Explorer that comes with the phone to move music and pictures from internal storage to the SD card. After the upgrade to KK 4.4.2 it doesn't work using the same file manager. Pre-upgrade it worked just fine. Tried Delete, Move and Copy functions and none seem to work. Deleting a picture file only seems to work from the Gallery app.

I'm a little frustrated as it seems it should work even with the restrictions of KK 4.4.2 for SD cards since its the pre-installed file manager that came with the phone and other seem to have success with it AND using the Gallery app to delete works. I can read from the SD card fine (File Manager sees the files, played music in the standard music app, view photos fine) so I don't think its a bad card already. (I just bought the card too).

Any thoughts on why the default file manager won't copy/move/delete files on the SD?
