move everything to data/media/0, and delete the other 0/0/0 folders..that will solve the issue

this is due to the multi user feature, and it usually happens due to flashing AOSP.. i had a guide for the gnex that reverted the sdcard from data/media/0 back to data/media, might try on the note 3 if i have time..

Ahh..That happened to me as well when I flashed KK, but I think I just got 2 folders. No need to format the sdcard, but you can if you want. Just move everything to the first 0 folder and you will be fine.

It's possible that MO is wiping the multi user file and thats causing the multiple 0 folders ti be created. I know that recoveries were updated so they don't delete that file when wiping but don't know about MO, as I don't use it.

thanks! that makes sense!
hmm so I should just copy everything from the subdirectory 0 folder into the main 0 folder right?
or if there's nothing important I can just delete the 0 folder (0/0) right?

thanks man!
