I currently have the same issue, which just happened recently, with v 4.4.2 on my TMO Galaxy S5. Currently Stock rooted with Philz Recovery.

Did you solve your issue?

Did you try the flashing of SuperSU and Superuser?

It could be androids new security feature that doesn't allow apps to write to SD cards. One of the main reason google removed the code for SD card support from stock android.

Soved the problem by installing Alliance ROM because it has the following feature: • Enabled External Sd-Card Read/Write Functionality

I started getting this message about a month ago after using TiBu for years. I use SlimRom on a Note 2. It does work to backup and restore to the internal card.

I don't have a problem accessing the external sdcard (sdcard1) from any other app. Rom Toolbox Pro and Helium do not have a problem creating or restoring backups to it. Titanium Backup will usually backup a few apps, as many as 5 or more to as little as none, before it bombs out and displays the insufficient storage message. It is not a problem with storage since I have over 20gb free. My permissions.xml file already has the sdcard permissions set correctly. I have tried updating superuser and forcing system busybox to no avail.

Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

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

Works for my Xiaomi Redmi Note. Thanks so much.
