Default [Q] Clockworkmod Backup Location Change?

Hey everyone,

I'm using CWM recovery.

When I make a nandroid backup, it gets saved to /mnt/shell/emulated/clockworkmod.

Is there a way to change this folder location? I would like it to be in sdcard0 so I can access it over USB easily. I know I can use ADB to pull from the existing location, but its more convenient to just plug in a USB cable and be good to go.

It used to be sdcard0 earlier, I'm not sure what changed it exactly. I think it happened when I installed ROM manager. I've uninstalled it since then.

you can copy it to sdcard0 with a root explorer.
but dont move it from its original directory, to be able to restore it.
