My NP is fully stock not rooted. I have a 64gb SD Card installed. I am able to copy files to it and some programs will use it to store data. The problem is when I try to change my email attachment download directory to the external SD card I get "This folder doesn't allow the creation of new files."

Is there any way to fix this?

What do you use? Gmail, the stock email app or any other? Try with another app, or copy the files to the internal storage and then attach them but sorry I've never had this problem...

I use Aqua Mail. I suspect it is an app issue. I sent a message to the developer, maybe they can help.

Thank!

Use the free SD fox app on the play store which you must be rooted to use. This is a known problem. Think I've read the update foxes it though.

I'm running the latest stock update, so it did not fix it.

Not sure I want to root my device right now since since I use it for work with an enterprise system.

No root == no go. It's a known KitKat issue, that can only be fixed if you're rooted.

That's strange: some apps work fine.

BTW, I didn't do the latest update (I'm rooted, and it didn't seem worthwhile to have to re-root). Maybe the update fixed this problem, but not completely? Just speculating.

SDfix from Play Store fixed it for me (root required).

Apps can only write to their private directories on the SD card. Or you used a system app.
