Default Emulated sd card

Yes, I have searched...

I have the 32 g nexus 7. I only have 5 g on my as card. My emulated sd card shows that 11 g are on it. The files on both cards appear identical. What will happen if I erase the emulated storage? I am rooted with up to date titanium and twrp back ups
