    I presume it's some kind of new memory scheme? I'm referring to my Nexus 7/13 of course, with Android 4.4.2

    Specifically, you have:

    /storage/emulated/0 and
    /storage/emulated/sdcard0

    But it's also redundant, because you also have:

    /sdcard

    Which is like the older Android OS.

    Can anyone put a little clarity to this mess?

    thx

    I received an email message from the developer of the app that uncovered this new memory-management system, and he agreed that the emulated memory system is a way for Android to accommodate multiple users on a single device.
