I find some app data that wasn't deleted after I deleted the app in /sdcard/Android. Maybe you got that too. Made some recovery backups?

Yeah, I've done many backups in the past, and I've also found many folders of old apps deleted but those folders are still there.

Backups takes a lot of space. Delete the ones you don't need anymore. Also the folders of old apps.

Maybe you can use /data/app names to figure out what folders you can delete.

If I'm right there aren't any system files on the internal storage(sdcard), but some apps do store data there and of course your personal files, like pictures, downloads or maybe music. You can copy all of the data to your pc, so you have a backup.

Thanks!! Yeah, I'm currently about to delete all those folders. The pictures, videos, music it doesn't even care. !!
About the apps, if I delete those folders, should I just re-install the app if it have some problem?

I would advice you to do a backup, just to be sure. You can format the internal sdcard in recovery. After that reboot and the necessary files/folders will be rebuild.
