[Q] /emulated/0 and /emulated/legacy
Alright, so I was kinda flipping between ROMs, Hyperdrive, Bonestock, Beanstown, and even a couple of AOSP ROMs. After all that flashing I realized I had a bunch of crap on my internal memory that I didnt need or want in there, so without even thinking about researching it before doing it I booted into recovery (TWRP) and formatted my internal memory.
So, since then I have applied the one click return to stock that odins a stock MDK image. I applied the stock MDK recovery. I booted into the stock recovery and wiped and factory reset everything besides doing the reset and delete everything from the settings menu.
Maybe its just me not paying attention but I am noticing something after starting fresh that I dont remember noticing before.
I have moved pictures from my External Memory card back to my internal memory card and I the files show up in two places, /storage/emulated/0 and /storage/emulated/legacy... My pictures in Gallery are also showing up as in two places, even after restoring back to stock mdk, stock recovery, wiping everything, etc. Is this normal? Is it just something that I missed and didnt pay attention to beforehand? I dont remember the internal memory being like this prior to my attempt to format it in TWRP but hey, what do I know... It doesnt look like the files are being duplicated it looks like its a system thing that shows two different locations that are actually the same lcoation but really, I'm too stupid to know better. Is there a way for gallery not to show the same files twice since it doesnt look like the files are actually duplicated but just maybe some sort of internal link from the folders showing two seperate locations?
If I am wanting to restore files from my ext card that I backed up should they be put in /0 or /legacy or does it even matter?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
