Its really ridiculous that we cannot change permissions on folders and files, even when rooted. I was able to backup my N6 to my sdcard. But now, after a fresh ROM install, I cannot even read the folders to perform the restore. *sigh*....so frustrating. I tried all the solutions here, and have even been able to modify the platform.xml file directly. but titanium backup will still not see the backups on the sdcard. smh

I think there is some feature in TB that you need to use if you are moving files from one device to another; in the IMPORT/EXPORT section of the Menu. But to be honest, its been a while, and I've never done a huge migration of files (usually just a few apps).

See if you can copy your TB files to your computer, format the card, then put the TB files back on SD. Some folks have had issues with the M8 reading cards (need to reformat), but computers or other devices read fine.

Believe it or not - this worked!! OMG - spent hours tryna reassign permissions to files & folders, and to put them in different access groups. Thanks for the suggestion. Once I unmounted/then remounted the drive I was able to access all my previous backups!

Interesting, after reading your post (#22) again, I thought your issue might be something different, and actually changed my response (Post #23 versus what you quoted). But it appears that my original "fix" was the correct one, so luckily you read it before I edited it!

Either way, happy to have helped! Yes, SD card reading on this device seems to be a bit finicky. A number folks have had similar issues like yours (although I haven't).
