Default [Q] How to clean wipe?

Hey guys wanted to know how can i clean wipe all the data folders on my phone except the new ROM file i want to flash
i have done normal formats and wipes but got so many dead/duplicated folders on it with the 0/0 and some other stuff
for exmple with root browser i got the SDCARD folder and then i got the STORAGE/SDCARD0 folder again
also got STORAGE/EMULATED/0/ and here ALSO all the files
and also on STORAGE/EMULATED/LEGACY

The SDCARD folders are in fact only links to the real sdcard folder.
I think these links are needed because android used to have another folder structure and older apps wouldn't be able to accept the sdcard.

For a completely clean wipe you can select wipe internal data in TWRP. Maybe you can push the ROM you want to flash via ADB push. But I'm not sure about that.

Ok thanks bud, its just that i know that the /0/ folder is a shortcut to the real folder yet the other 2 i wrote down are old files that i had with other ROMS i have used back in the day
