Any clue as to how to get the Titanium Backup folder to copy and be recognized from my 32GB Sandisk to 64GB Samsung MicroSD Ext Card? I did the whole process with a USB card reader of copying ALL files from the 1st card to the computer and then using the card reader again, copied all my files including the Titanium Backup folder to the new 64GB card but when I put it back in the S4 and go in to TIBU, it doesn't see any of the backup files and of course when I check with a file program like Astro, the Titanium backup folder is empty. All other files copied over fine and are readable on the new 64GB card.

Open Titanium. Use the menu key, Preferences, Backup Settings, Backup folder location. Re-select the /storage/extSdCard/TitaniumBackup folder to tell Ti where the backups are stored. Hopefully that'll get it back. (assuming you use the default folder.)

Or, use a file explorer and go to /storage/extSdCard/TitaniumBackup - there should be a whole bunch of files there. If not, check how you copied from the old to the new card.

Thanks for the suggestion. It seems though that my problem is more severe than expected and not only effecting TIBU files on the new Samsung Class 10 microSDHC Card 64GB I purchased on Ebay. It came in brand new packaging but now I wondering if it might be a "knock off" and I got had. Other files are disappearing like a couple directories of pictures. my TWRP backups, ect... after being copied and initially view-able on the device using Astro file. I did a little googling and found a program called H2testw that I'm running on the remaining free memory (aprox 45 GB) now.

Doesn't make sense

Yeah never a good idea to get an sd card on eBay it's probably like 90% fake now. Did you pay full price from a reputable seller?

Wow. Based on the seller's feedback, they're likely to refund. However, that's pretty horrible.

Yea, I'm hoping for a refund. Printed off the pre-paid shipping label via ebay returns which surprised me the seller pays for the shipping back. Really wild how they package these things in "Samsung" looking packaging and even stamped Samsung on the card. But I'm convinced they are selling knock-offs somehow. Don't know how all that works and I did originally base my purchase decision off the seller's feedback and history.

It makes me wonder how many of their cards are good vs.s how many returns they have to process. How any money is made in the process.
