    Default Is it safe to delete sdcard/0?

    I recently rommed to a 4.2 rom and went back to a 4.1.2 rom, and I noticed I now have 2 storages sort of, one is marked sdcard/0 and the other is what I believe to be my regular storage

    From my understanding this is because 4.2 contains a multi user feature and it causes this to happen because of it, and the sd card 0 contained files I originally had installed and all my backups

    While the other storage didn't have my nandroid backups or anything. I now have moved the nandroids from cmw as well as the twrp folder to my 'regular' storage

    So my question is, can I now delete the sdcard 0 folder? Or should I just leave it alone

    Thanks in advance, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has come across this issue

    Sdcard/0 is internal storage on JB... exsdcsrd is the external. Not sure why they did this. I hate it

    I hear this has to do with 4.2 and that sdcsrd/0 is just a duplicate of your regular internal storage and has the exact same files, except that sdcard 0 has your backups while sdcard regular has 0 backups

    Nope, /sdcard/0 is your sdcard data. Before 4.2 it was just in /sdcard. If you have multiple users on the device there will be a /sdcard/1 etc. I don't advise deleting it.

    I went back to 4.1.2,so I no longer need that section. And copied my backups back to my regular sdcard

    I decided to delete sdcard 0 and everything is fine

    Ah, yeah... Didn't catch that bit. No reason for it on 4.1.2
