    Rooted my phone and ran Nandroid and Titanium backups. I just went to put a copy of the backups on my laptop and could not find any Nandroid files on my sd card.

    Went back into recovery and ran Nandroid again. Noticed that even though I got the "Backup Complete" there were error messages above:

    No sdcard/ .android_secure found. skipping backup of applications on external storage.

    No sd-ext found. Skipping backup of sd-ext.

    The card is a 2gig formatted fat32. Everything else seems to be fine with it. What am I missing?

    Thanks :thinking:

    It's not stored as "Nandroid". It's in your sdcard under clockwordmod/backup/

    That last part is totally normal to get, at least for me. I get it everytime but my nandroids work 100% of the time.

    create a folder on the root of your sd named ".android_secure" this will back up your apps when running a nand backup

    the sd-ext is for backup up apps on sd card for froyo roms. partition your sd card via rom manager and you should be all set to back up those 2 things

    None of that is necessary. Check the previous posts. The Nandroid backup is in the \clockworkmod directory.

    Evidently those messages are normal and simply mean that Nandroid found no ext partition and no apps on the sd card, not that it needs the partition.

    This thread should be closed.
