Hi,

Tried creating an 'image.zip' with CWM 6. There is a successful confirmation message that the file was written to /sdcard/clockworkmod/image.zip. But I can't find the file and there is no change in the available space after supposedly having written the file. I think the file was not saved.

I'm using trickdroid 7.5.0 / android 4.2.2.

Any ideas what's wrong?

Thanks

I have the same issue. I am on 4.4.4 and I installed CWM only to create this zip file. I only see it within CWM but can't find it in Explorer in the same folder. I generally use TWRP.

CWM stores backups in /data/media/clockworkmod (old 4.1.2 filesystem), now sdcard goes to /data/media/0/....

you'll need to use a root-enabled file explorer to get to /data/media/
