Default [Q] Storage full with nothing filling it


A while back I tried to install CM on my friends LG G2. We installed CWM, made a backup and everything went well, until we were done flashing the ROM. It wouldn't boot, and after a few tries we decided to use download mode to reset everything back to stock. Everything is fine now, except I think the backup is still there. There's only a little more space left, but he only has about 4gb of data on the phone. We looked at all the folders and nothing was taking up all that space.

How can we delete that stuff taking up all the space? Would a normal factory reset work, or do we need to get CWM on there again to delete that backup?

Thanks in advance.

You have to root your phone... download a root explorer ( exaple Root Browser free) and from there you can see all the files that are hogging your memory and eliminate the.... after ( if you did not already did it) move the device's backup on the external sd card because it takes a lot of memory
