cant FTP onto SD card since 4.4.2 upgrade ?

Hi All,

I'm running a Galaxy note 3 (N-9005) with andftp pro (latest from play store)

I recently received an update to android 4.4.2

the new security rules brought in in 4.4.2 seem to be preventing me from downloading
media from my FTP server into the SD card

The only work around I have found is to create a "buffer" folder on the internal storage
and FTP to that, then use a file manager to copy the files to the target folder on the SD - which works but is a major pain !!

Although technically capable , I cant root the device for a number of operational reasons.

Is this something that can be addressed please ?

is it indeed possible to code around the new restrictions ?
