Default [Q] ever since 4.4 - no joy with sdcard backups

Running a custom rom 4.4.2 on mdl bootloader. Never had a bit of trouble with tibu for years. Now it doesn't work any more. It can't access my external sd card. The titanium folder that I've been using on sdcard is renamed uitanium and is empty. When I start tibu it says not accesible. So I gave up on it and tried a bunch of other ones from the play store. All the same - it looks like when you use the back up software it works. Then if you go back and try to do a restore -it's not there any more. Kind of sucks. I guess I didn't use it for much really just a few apps that were easier to restore data than type everything back in again. Trying one of the google drive based ones now. Crap I guess that was Googles evil plan to begin with... wait a second isn't their moto do know evil?? Does anyone on a custom 4.4 rom have any luck using tibu writing to their external sd?

I've just been letting Google do my restores during set up. Haven't used titanium in at least 6 months. But, when I used to make backups I used my backup along with titanium.

No problems here doing backup and restore with TiBu on 4.4.2 ROM.
There's a fix posted somewhere fir those with extsdcard problems. Let see if I can locate it, it might help.
