Hi there

Im sorry if this been asked before, but I did some searches and couldnt find anything related to this

I just made a factory reset on my phone, because the battery drain was horrible and couldnt locate which app was causing this.

The device is rooted and its been working fine until now. For some reason Titanium Backup cannot access the path storage/emulated/0. This is where the backups are supposed to be stored. But it doesnt have access to any other internal path, it always says "this folder is not writable" every time I try to use internal storage. Thus cant make any backup or restore. I cant even see the list of the apps that are installed in order to freeze some of them.

Same happens to ES File Explorer. Before I could access storage/emulated/0 to transfer files from/to my MicroSD. And when I tried to copy a WhatsApp back up it says that it failed. In the memory selector I could choose between extCard and the before mentioned path. Now I can only see the extCard and a "legacy" drive, or whatever its called.

I tried fixing permisions for TB and ES File Explorer and used an App thats suppossed to fix the KitKat SDcard issue but its not working for me

It seems to me that the internal storage is somehow write protected?

Anyone can help? With links or your own knolwdge.

Thanks
