Having a bit of a storage problem here. Phone is stating that I'm 75% full but I have barely any apps (100 apps including system apps) and nothing stored in internal sd. I've. Been flip flopping between aosp, cm and stock roms. Does cm or aosp roms store data on internal storage separately.?

It's definitely some cm or other rom folders, dig into folders that start with a "."

Should that Android folder be there? Looks like apks are in a data folder. Is this a cm folder?

I'm on an nandroid stock back up right now. I'm just wondering if CyanogenMod or AOSP makes a separate folder for file system that I'm missing.

How many nandroid backups have you got? a nandroid of stock could run to 3 or 4 GB

That's exactly what I meant.
My nandroid done like two days ago, with nothing except apps and like whatsapp media, was ~6GB...
They are of course stored in the clockworkmod folder, he just should delete some of them (namely the older ones).
Or hey, just store the backups on the sd card, he has a 128GB one, I say there's lots of space there...

All my nandroids are on the 128gb card. There is none on the internal.

Okay I went into CWM and looked into SD card and saw 3 nandroids. I went and rebooted but I can't find it anywhere. Where is it ?. I deleted 2 in cwm and I'm back up to over 7 gigabytes of storage.. I can see them in CWM but I can't see them in root explorer?
