This is all the data and info that you've backed up using Clockworkmod recovery. This is one of 6.0.1 "update". Apparently, this will save you some storage when you backup up multiple ROMs. Don't delete it, or the restoring would not be successful. If you want to delete a backup, either delete using file explorer or ROM manager. Then you reboot to recovery. Then the recovery will delete certain portion of the data in blob file that matches the deleted backup.
personally don't like it, so I use TWRP

Hope this answered your question

Will convert to twrp. Thanks. Just didn't know if that massive file size was normal.

I didn't force you to convert to TWRP by any means... If you like CWM, just use older version. Also that is normal

Another thing I should mention, TWRP cannot restore CWM backups and vice-versa.

Or use one of the newer builds like 6.0.1.2 or 6.0.1.3 and choose to use the old .tar method.

Nobody forced me into anything. I've been thinking about switching to twrp for a while now anyway. I prefer their UI to CWM. I've just used CWM since my days with my Droid Inc and EVO. TWRP was incredibly easy to convert to and I am currently making twrp back ups on both my Galaxy Nexus and my Nexus 7. I didn't have any old back ups that I couldn't live without in CWM. Now when I get rid of the CWM I can just delete the blobs folder and get that 11 gb back right? Plus I'm looking forward to using my USB OTG to store my backups. They have always been the one thing that has dominated my storage.
