I put a different sd card in and transferred all files from previous memory card. I noticed that my sdcard/nandroid folder with all my backups were deleted. I create a new one but whenever I go into recovery, it disappears. I try to make a backup and it gives me an error. It cannot locate the sdcard folder. Any ideas on why the nandroid folder is disappearing and how can I relink the sdcard folder in amon with the new card?

if I put the old card in, it backups fine.

From the topic about the recovery..

Always check recovery.log before posting your issues! You can do this by doing :

"cat /tmp/recovery.log" OR "cat /cache/recovery/log" right after you had the issue. Use the "move log to sd" option in the "others" menu right after you had the issue. This will move the log to /sdcard/recovery.log so you can easily open it with a text editor.

thanks. I should have mentioned that there is no recovery log created in any of the folders as I checked beforehand. I tried moving it to the sd card but still nothing.

Can't think of what would be wrong... perhaps, trying flashing the recovery again. That would force it to setup the directory correctly..

yup. this time i formatted the card from the phone in settings but again, once I remove the phone from the pc, it deletes the nandroid folder. very odd. I just recreated it in es explorer, rebooted into recovery and the backup is running now. wierd. hopefully it sticks.

Don't really know what this means but it looks like where the problem is...

Install from internal_sdcard...
Finding update package...
I:Update location: INTERNALSD:Business_ICS4.0.3_Sense3.6-v2.2.zip
Opening update package...
I:Update file path: /internal_sdcard/Business_ICS4.0.3_Sense3.6-v2.2.zip
E:Can't open /internal_sdcard/Business_ICS4.0.3_Sense3.6-v2.2.zip

That was when I tried flashing from the phone storage. Got the same error from flashing from the sdcard.

Have you tried other zips or just this one since you reflashed? If just this one, did you check the md5 after downloading? Seems this may be a bad file if it can't be opened.

I had an issue with it not reading my external card once when flashing a ROM but it specifically said it couldn't read my external card. So I would guess it's the fie you are trying to flash.
