  1. Btsync can no longer sync (write) to folders on the Ext SD card with Note 3 after Android 4.4.2. update. Syncing to the files on internal SD is still OK. Reading via WiFi from the Ext SD card is OK. Read/Write to the Ext SD card via USB cable is OK I tried with a new Ext SD card. Same problem. Everything OK, except No writing to the Ext SD card through WiFi. So, the problem seems to be with Android 4.4.2. On my old Galaxy S II, syncing to both internal and external SD are OK. After some research, some blogs seem to indicate that this is a new feature of Android 4.4.2, where applications need to ask for permission to write to the external SD card. So an update from Google/Samsung may never come, and the app developers may have to make the necessary modifications to get permissions to write to the external SD card. Some people suggest a modification to the platform.xml file (for rooted devices) to achieve this. I hope that this information is helpful today. If someone else has a solution to this problem, I would appreciate to know about it. Rolf
