If you have Android KitKat, and device with removable memory card, you may have noticed that writing to your memory card is not possible in X-plore and many other apps.
This is because of Google's decision to “protect” files in removable memory card, which was apparently bad decision, as users are not able to write to their own memory cards.
Unless device with Android KitKat is rooted and special fix applied, installed applications can write only into their private folder on external memory card.
On affected devices with Android KitKat, X-plore now offers full write access to external memory card, but only inside of X-plore's private folder. That's what Android KitKat officially allows to be done. On these devices, you can find new entry called “KitKat sandbox” in X-plore, which provides access to this special folder, where you can read/write as you wish. However, there are limitations:
The folder where X-plore stores files accessible from the KitKat sandbox entry is located on memory card in folder
If you look for your files stored here in other file manager, or on PC, you can find them in above location.
