Default [Solved] Change TWRP backup location

I always used CWM on my other phones and now installed TWRP 2.6.3.3 and have following issue:

Like CWM, TWRP creates its own folder on SD-partition (internal storage on Mini). But the backups are stored in "root/data/media/TWRP/...", not in "SD/TWRP/...", so when backuping my files from phone I have to copy the TWRP-backup first to SD (I don't want to use adb etc. for that).

Why is TWRP not using the standard-folder on SD and can I change the location?

Also mounting internal storage doesn't work in TWRP. Any ideas?

...ok, solved (expect mounting)!

Solution (if you have the same issue): I moved the TWRP-folder from root to sd and now TRWP backups/restores onto/from SD.

Why not use "es file explorer" grant root privileges in settings and then copy to sd. That works for me

Just spotted that you have solved this.

Yes, always copied with ES before, but now it works like it should.

BTW I think TWRP used the root-location because I superwiped the phone a few days ago and there was no SD-partition. And as long the TWRP-folder exists on root it seems that it doesn't use the one on SD.
