    Question I'm Confused: Multiple "var" folders
    Hello everyone,
    lately I've been trying to get get rid of unnecessary files in my iPhone to free some storage space. But while looking trough the file system with iExplorer I discovered something strange.

    I have some folders that repeat themselves with all their content.
    root/var/mobile
    root/private/var/mobile
    root/user/mobile

    Why are this var and mobile folders repeated? Should they all be there or is smething wrong? I want to save space so having my pictures and so on 3 times is a concern.

    I have an iPhone 4 with 5.1 and jailbroken of course.

    Thank you for your help

    If I'm not mistaken I think they all belong there. I wouldn't mess with nothing in ifile especially if ya not to familiar with it. Could lead to a restore

    They all belong there. They are all links to the same folder
