Default [Q] File System Issue

Hi all,

I have recently flashed my phone and something seems to have went wrong. Checking through the sd card with astro I noticed that I have somehow managed to duplicate the filesystem. It reads sdcard/0 - android and whatnot, sdcard/0/0 - exactly the same thing. I'm pretty sure I have an idea which is the 'older' version, but my question is whether it is safe to outright delete it or is there a better option?

Thanks.

After some further reading I have found that this is to do with the way Jelly Bean handles user accounts. I currently have the following:


storage/emulated/0
storage/emulated/legacy

and

sdcard0/
sdcard0/0

I would appreciate any advice on what to do (remove, leave alone, etc). Thanks again.

I worked this out, but here is my solution if anybody else has the same issue:

The storage/emulated/0 folder is a symbolic link to /sdcard0/ on the sd card, you can confirm by copying a file into a folder and checking. Just delete the other profiles that are no longer necessary.
