so to sumarize it ..

- card is OK
- all possible apps may write to your card without problems
- only Locus is not able even a create own directory!

Interesting is also, that locus check at start if is able to create and write to "locus" directory. if not, you should get warning that root cannot be created. Anyway I yesterday evening found a quite simple way how to create log on your device.

Please try
- delete Locus folder
- start Locus
- after error, close it
- go to system settings > developer options (if you do not see, do this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mp07dPusJNA )
- in "developer options" click first "Take bug report"  > Report
- keep device calm and after a while, you will get notification that report is ready to send, so send it to support.locus@asamm.com

In log will be probably any error, so I hope it will be useful and we will see where is a problem

Hey Menion
1.Yes Card works fine.
2. All other Apps can access sd with out errors
3. Locus can only create dir/folder on internal sd not on ext. Sd.
It seams to me that Locus can't write a dir to ext.sd, but others can.

I'll do what you wrote , my Dev options is on..I just have to move or copy the Locus folder and open Locus.
I'll make a report later today

Hi, I'm having kitkat on my note 3. There are restrictions for writing on external SD cards for apps. It's not a samsung bug, it's a restriction from the new Android 4.4.2 on external SD card. I can't create or copy files with solid Explorer, too.

Yes that could be it..But Samsung has to open up for ext.sd support when ext.sd is pressent on Samsung devices.
Edit: I have no problems create folders or copy/paste and delete to ext.sd with Stock file browser,  but Root Explore does not work.

Menion report is send..14 mb

interesting discussion, thanks wurlitzer!

thanks also for logs ... there is only one error from locus

Code: [Select]
open failed: EACCES (Permission denied)
I was searching and searching, and all leads to this permission . Which say, that since API 19 (A4.4+), this is required to read data from card. Just read, not write, but maybe it means just to have access.

They also wrote that "Any app that declares the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission is implicitly granted this permission.". Locus already has "WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" ... weird ...

Unfortunately I'm testing and developing Locus on Nexus 7, which do not have slot on SD card, so I can't test it. May you please try this Locus Free/Test version I created for you? Thanks



Also on different forum I read

Code: [Select]
In addition to all answers above, make sure you're not using your phone as a usb storage. I was having the same problem on HTC Sensation on usb storage mode enabled, I can still debug/run the app but can't save to external storage.
maybe this should help?

Hey
I have tested the apk and is getting same error (can't access storage in read / write mode)
It is wierd Root Explore can't delete from ext.sd, but Stock file manager can.
 USB storage is not on.

I'll use internal until then. No problem.
Tnx for looking into it. .
