Hi Folks

Just recently brought a 64GB SDXC card for my S4.

with only a measly 9gb free space on the internal memory I brought the SD card to move items such as my nandroid and titanium backups as well as photos and other media.

I managed to move the nandroid backups ok however I also run a daily Titanium backup which still writes to the local memory. I have changed the path to point to a folder on the SD card but it fails to write to this area.

At this moment in time I dont want move Apps to SD just the other bits as this will allow me to recover about 3/4GB of space.

Does anyone know how I can force titanium backup to move or write new files to the SD card location?

Thanks

Follow this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2524277 to make your card writable, then copy your Titanium backup folder over, and run the Titanium to set the default backup location.

I'm trying to do the same by enable RW permission for the externalSD but ended corrupted my system/etc/permissions/platform.xml. Appreciate if anyone can send me the file.

Thanks.

I was recommended a app to download called FolderMount which would do this for me, I have to say since I have used this it found an issue with my SD card and fixed it automatically, then pointed Titanium back to the SD card and it now works fine..

Something to consider..
