Default [Q] sd card 4.4.2

I've been using the same 32gb sd card since my gs2. I just transfered it to m919 and it worked just fine since then. But ever since I updated to 4.4.2, I can explore the sd card, but I can't move or delete files. Any suggestions?

KitKat was the first version of Android where OEMs fully complied with Googles initiative to restrict App access to the SD Card. Apps that before could read and write to the SD Card can do so no longer. They may only use the internal storage. There have been many discussions as to why Google made this change but no one knows for sure. It sucks hard.
