Default Backed up with CWM navigating to the folder in restore says "no files"

Hi i need help ASAP,
I backed up my phone with CWM it made a folder as a backup.
When I tried to restore the backup I navigated to the folder and it showed me inside that folder (like there are no files) instaed of starting the backup procces.
one more problem is that now i flashed another ROM with TWR and I didn't know it will be with TWR so I am not sure I can backup CWM with it.
please refer to my 2 questions as it combined.

Can you clarify if CWM is able to restore the Backup ? If its not, then the backup was not made successfully.

To your Question, are you saying you flashed TWRP Recovery and then flashed the new Rom ? If that's the case then the CWM backup can't be restored by TWRP.

EDIT - I should caution you that it is not a good idea to restore the backup made by one Recovery with another.
