Thank you for the TWRP with other device, but new to HTC butterfly S.

Encounter some problem with data.ext.win and the win000 file with special permission Set UID and Set CID, which not allow me to copy to my PC or even using TWRP file manger to copy to external_sd card.

Also, does not allow me to backup to external_sd.

Please advise if i did something wrong.

Sorry. Posted this question in the wrong section.
Basically wanna copy out the phone's TWRP backup folder to PC to save up the stock unroot version.
And was not able to do that due to Set UID and CID in permission, something with the kernel security.
