why??? what is the problem? How to fix it??

Don't know why, or what caused the problem. If this happened to me, I would copy all contents of the microSD to my computer, format the microSD by using the Format SD card option in the phone's Settings menus (on my phone it's in Settngs/Storage), and then copy the contents from the computer back to the microSD..

That may very well be. The ap is not complicated to use, the only problem i can see that cased the issue i had (and maybe for others as well) is the "Target" path that we need to manually insert.
Can you tell me what path you entered for the target (which would be the internal storage)? I used a file explorer to see the full path and it would seem that this was indeed wrong. The wrong target path still allowed the items to be copied but the bind failed.
No matter what path i use i get an error on the target directory (but the files still transfer)

target path is where ur current data is (internal sd) *data path is where ur sd internal files should go to & fake ur device to believe ur files is still there. which is y after u successfully mount when bind check u still find ur files in, if u unbind and check ur internal sd it only show the folder name and empty inside.

Thanks, this i already know i actually wanted the exact path because i used /sdcard/ & /mnt/sdcard and got errors on both and the files ended up in the external sd, they were no longer in the internal and the bind failed.

BTW thanks for the assistance.

/mnt/sdcard is wrong path, it is ur internal sd not sd card. the right data path should be /mnt/extSdCard/urwadeverdata/

Right but i was asking about the target path... which is what i got errors on and caused the original problem.
Anyhow after a bit of "playing" i managed to successfully bind a folder.

Cheers.

Update - I spoke too soon, the game whose folder i binded didn't seem to like it and wants me to re-download the data
I guess i should only stick with gameloft games? or the ones mentioned by the developer. And i just saw that this folder disappeared from the app's list of binded items...

Yeah, i'm going back to my original conclusion - this app doesn't really work or is very limited.

Latest is version 0.2.0o. I haven't found another app to do the same thing. You can do like I used to do and manually move the data and set up system scripts with the mount bind -o command and then use a utility like SManager to run the scripts on bootup,...but DirectoryBind makes the binding and unbinding process so much easier.
