You can fix it by giving relevant information to the people who will potentially be helping you.

Which roms did you flash?
Has your total or available dropped to 3GB??
Can you provide screens of storage details???

You can solve this by using a program called diskusage.

Just tap on the miscellaneous bar.. and check what is hogging your space... There is stuff in your phone which only u can see and remove
Give a Chance to a New Developer..!! Xda is just not about Fanboyism..
It's about encouraging a person who is investing his/her time and resources for you.. For FREE..!!

deleting those 0 folders wont affect anything it just hold your old data that was used by previous rom if u explore you will find your previous data and u can simply delete with any file explorer even with my files

I'm gonna take a shot at the dark here too... maybe you also still have a bunch of Custom ROM zip files on your phone (the files you used to flash in recovery). ^^ :P
If you need help, check the FAQ first for whatever ROM you're on. Then ask questions.
