Previously I have installed CWM as my recovery but then I have flashed the stock rom back. CWM was removed as a result and I can no longer access CWM. I am trying to delete all the backups I made. Ideally I don't want to reinstall CWM.

I tried to find the location of the backups and I came across /mnt/shell/emulated/clockworkmod/backup. Is it safe to remove the files in this directory with adb? Or is there a better way to do it?

/mnt/shell/emulated/ seems to contain a copy of the old files which is different than /mnt/sdcard/.

Note that this is on Samsung Galaxy S3 which the version of the CWM is fairly old.

Yes. They are just files and can be deleted as normal.

There are probably several symlinks and aliases on your device that all point to /mnt/sdcard/, nothing to worry about there.
