I downloaded SDFIX from the play store, reboot, when back to titanium backup, hit menu, general, go down to backup location, press the back button until you see mnt section, click on it, you'll see external sd, click on it, create folder & boila!! Hope it works for you

HTC does not allow writing to the /system partition unless from recovery. To disable this, flash a kernel w/ the protection disabled http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2705613 Or you can manually install this module: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2701816 After installing either of these, you can use any app posted above to gain write access to external sd.
(FYI the writing to sd card was disabled by google in recent versions of kitkat for all devices)
HTC One M8 running stock(current)
SGS III running Quantum by pwncakes (old and sold)
Moto Atrix 4g running Neutrino(older)
Samy Captivate (paperweight )

Tried all that, but even tho titanium reckons that sdcard2 is writable (don't get the red no write message) as soon as I try to back something up I get a not enough storage space error message (and yes I have enough space, over 11GB on external card.)
