Exclamation [Q] Emulated storage

At some point my phone emulated the storage on the device. Now that this has happened I can't get back to the "real root" of my storage on the phone. It is here that there are old ROM's and old backups that are taking up a lot of space(over 5GB's). I've tried different file managers but can't get to it. When I go to flash new ROM's TWRP sees the old "root" of my storage, but I can't delete anything .

How do I get back to the old file structure?? Help!!

At some point you updated to a newer version of Android. What you see is what you get. Go under storage, in that folder :emulated, sdcard0 and usb.
Under root, in that folder : sdcard.
I use root explorer
