Never had this issue before in the past 4 year I've used Clockworkmod but basically I have my backup folder on my external SD and whenever I try to restore a backup via the backup and restore menu in recovery I get an error saying there are none to be found.

Been googling for the past hour with no luck and it's now 3:05am and I'm just about ready to launch my device out the window.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

If we're assuming the SD card is functioning properly and in the correct format that CWM supports, then either your version of CWM doesn't support restoring from external, you have to manually choose restore from the external, or the naming structure is messed up. Have you just tried moving it to internal just long enough to see if the backup is working and then move it back?
