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)

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.)

Hi there.
I also tried your's and many other steps.
In the end it was a simple thing for me.
Went: >Settings>Storage>standard storage>choose "sdcard"
That's it.
After a restart, ii was not even necessary to choose sdcard in TB.
Changed to it itself.

Another fix for anyone else having trouble.
Nothing above worked for me. It was frustrating when all other relevant apps could write to the extsd card including file explorer programs.
Anyway loaded Xsense (Xposed) module which has a setting "RW to extSD card", ticked it, rebooted and bingo. Backing up to extSD card as I'm typing this.
