Default Titanium Backup: "Batch backup interrupted: insufficient free storage space"

I was using TB without issues until SuperSu (Pro) updated to version 2.00. Now TB gives me constantly the "insufficient free storage" error. I have disabled Dropbox (and other) online backup, I have uninstalled/installed the app several times (including the Pro license).

My ROM is SlimRom 4.4.3 v5.9 (latest weekly). Other root apps are working ok. I want to save to external sdcard: /extSdCard/TitaniumBackup
SuperSu (Pro) latest version 2.00.
Of course I have free space (more than 2Gb).

Seems a 4.4.3 flood of issues is coming...

I've tested several symlinks to use sdcard, no one is working:

/storage/sdcard1/TitaniumBackup
/mnt/extSdCard/TitaniumBackup
/extSdCard/TitaniumBackup
/external_sd/TitaniumBackup

If anyone has an idea how to use TB with 4.4.3 and external sdcard I would thank so much if he/she posts how could solve the issue.

I also have the same problem using Android 4.4.2. All the proposed fixes (platform.xml edit; change directory to emulated/legacy; SDFix app; etc.) DO NOT WORK.

Please help us!

Into Titanium advanced settings, configure it to use your ROM's Busybox and not the one shipped with Titanium.
Restart the app and check if it helps.

It went away the same way it comes. Right now, I think the change of the Busybox to system (and not to the TB Busybox) did the job.
What do you think it solved your problem?

What solved mine was after updating to 4.4.2 (I have a Note II), it changed the way external was written to. I noticed the tibu folder was not writable and I wasn't even allowed to change permissions via root explorer. After some digging, I found this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=44370296 which explains to modify platform.xml.

After editing the file and rebooting, no more issues with "insufficient free storage space".

Thanks, but that was my ROM default platform.xml file, so it's not the same. My problem could be somewhere else as the .xml file was always in the correct form on how is suggested in that thread. Thanks anyway.
