Root [International] Cant restore my backup cwm files

Hey guys i have a problem for 3 weeks now with samsung note 2 n7100 and would love some pro advice.I flashed a slim bean 4.2.2 v6 around 3.5 weeks back and used it for some week and then wanted to change my rom to stock touchwiz just by restoring but it didnt as after installing almost all apps it said failed /data.

Now after that i tried to install moon rom but it didnt flash properly and in middle of flashing i went into cwm mode and by mistake instead of restoring backed up that rom.

Then after i installed hawkish rom and then omega rom v17 and in all roms i cleaned cache and dalvik and did a full wipe but still cant restore hawkish,omega or any other rom except slim bean.

Now iam not sure what is wrong but feel something coz of slim rom?

(There is also a 0 folder in my internal memory which is like 1.45 gb).

Any advice for me on how can i get this problem sorted.

Thanks guys for help.
 
The 0 folder happens after flashing. Android puts all folders in the root directory you had on the previous rom in a folder named 0. This includes the android -> data folder. When you tried to restore your touchwizz rom nandroid backup, cwm was looking for the data files of your apps in the root folder, but couldn't find them because they where moved to 0. Hence the failed/data notification.

To solve this, use a file explorer to copy paste the entire contents of the 0 folder back into the root directory (basically the folder that you see when you start a file explorer) and then try restoring again. Normaly from the 0 folder to the root folder would be one step up, but since you flashed a whole bunch of roms after all this had started, it might be that there are multiple 0 folders higer up in the directory. Merge them all into the root directory folder and then try restoring again.
