I do a backup in NanDroid, to the external SD card. And plug the phone to mac/pc using usb cable

Browsing the SD card on computer clearly shows that about 1 GB is used now (it was empty before backup)

But the backup itself is not visible, on both OSX and Windows 7

Only when browsing in the phone itself I see the backup file/folder

When I open file browser in Android, it looks like the backup folder has CHMOD permissions set to only allow access for Owner and Group (not others), but I can't change it there (it's just for viewing properties I guess)

Tried installing Root Browser and change permissions for the backup folder (to give read access to everybody). Result: "not possible on some systems" o.0

Is CHMOD permissions the reason, or is it because the computer cache is not refreshed for the file browsing? (but the used SD card space IS updated on computer, so I doubt that's it)

How to fix or get around this?

Phone is a rooted Sony Xperia Go with Android 4.4.4. Backup is CWM
