Default Twrp and backing up to external sd

Installed TWRP v2.6.3.8 and when I back up it says "failed"

It says E: unable to create folder: external_sd/TWRP E: Failed to make Backup Folder

I'm running Stock/Rooted Note2 i317M

I tried to shorten the Backup Name, that didn't work I also can't backup to Internal SD either, only to Micro SDCard Partitions selected is Boot, System and Data

Just delete the name that's generated. By swiping from right to left on the keyboard. Then just rename it to whatever you like.

Try installing TWRP via ODIN. Also make sure your card exFat format.
