Default [Q] Backup But... Help?

I'm rooted but none of my backup managers will let me make a backup of my app's to external sd card... I'm trying to backup so I can try a new rom, but also everytime I try to copy or delete something from my external sd card it says it failed or denied and card is something I forgot copywrite protected or some crazy junk like that.

I just wanna get control of my external sd card back

It's a 64Gb card with about 48Gb's of stuff on it.

I'm trying to backup to the cloud and then flash a new rom, it backs up about 20 or so app's at a time and then errors out.

I might try and copy all it's files to my hard drive and then reformat.

I've been seeing 128Gb microsd cards on ebay with zero negative feedback or bad reviews, but being burned once on fake sd cards makes me a bit hesitant when I bought a 32Gb and it was actually a 512Mb microsd with cloned layers to appear to be a 32Gb.
