What version of CWM do you have and what ROM are you running? And did you have that little space left all along or was it only after you tried making a backup?

Im not sure but its not that i tried to backup a stock version of the latest legit ROM from samsung and it failed and phone restarted and now it show like 500 mb's left on my phone. I check all files on the phone and nothing is taking up space all the files on my phone together is like 2gb. not sure whats wrong. I installed a different rom to check if thats a issue with the stock Samsung ROM but nope it still same.

EDIT: I just tried to format the DATA partition which it shows takes up 12GB but didnt do anything.

Well if you're running an older version of CWM, you will have issues with any 4.3 roms, stock or not. I would firstly upgrade to the latest version of CWM, and then if you can, use a root Explorer either on your phone or laptop to see hidden files.
I personally had an issue due to having an older version of CWM, and I had a few gb of data hidden behind a bunch of nested 0 folders.
If you still don't see anything, then maybe a format of the internal SD thru CWM is in order. Hopefully you have/are able to back up all that info before you need to do that tho.

I am running the LATEST version of CWM i remembered i checked like 2 weeks ago i can check again but shouldnt be a problem. Ill check right now with root explorer and see if i find any files. I already backed up everything on my SD card.
