Change Titanium Backups to the Ext card
I saw this comment by another user in another thread this morning and guess that many people don't do this automatically.

When I setup Titanium Backup, I always make sure that it is using the real external SDcard instead of the internal card it uses by default. I'm surprised the app doesn't ask when it is run the first time, but it doesn't.
It is easy to change, especially if you don't have any backups yet. Even if you do, it will move them to the new folder you setup in the process.
The mount point for the external SDCard can be one of two though I normally use the system default one which is
I use BOX to sync 1 copy of my backups (I have 3 histories) rather than using my dropbox because I have a 50gb box account.
If you think about it, having TB store on the Internal card doesn't do you much good if the unit dies. At least by syncing it to the external card you can take it out of the phone, but if you lose the phone altogether, you lose all your backups if you don't make a habit of copying them to another source which if you do manually won't work because you will forget to do it.
