Default [Q] A whole load of problems / partition / recovery

I have installed Omnirom version 2.4.3 on my Samsung Galaxy S3 and now I have a few problems but I have no idea how to fix them. Basically all my ROM backups were in a folder called clockwork mod but now they are no longer there. Instead they are in /data/media/clockworkmod? I have tried to copy the back up ROMs from this location to my SD card but even though the files are all there. When I go in to recovery Philz Touch and try to install the back up it say no files found?

How can I fix this? Its as if my internal sdcard has been partitioned? How can I get it back to one partition? Any help would be greatly received because I am in a bit of a mess at the moment.

Read this it explains everything also there is a setting in PhilZ trecovery to change where it looks for backups >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...-data-t2274218 <<

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

Thanks for the reply and link tallman. I have read complete thread but there's no mention of how to get Philz Touch recovery to find back ups on separate part of internal SD partition. To be honest its really confusing and I think I'm over my head here. Any help greatly received.

I think you go to Advanced menu and select Sdcard target /data/media not 100% sure I have cwm installed at moment..If not go to his thread and it should tell you..

Update:

Sorted now. Long story but its sorted. I wouldn't have been able to sort it out and keep all my files though without your help. Thanks.

Do you know the easiest way to completely format the entire phone back to factory settings keeping recovery?
After selecting data/media did you rebooted recovery..
If you did then just check whether the backups exist in your int SD card after booting your rom..
