Thanks In Advance
They are not required for the filesystem.
Those directories are the "FSH" filesystem hiarchy of gnu/linux.
You can safely remove them.
You probably formatted it as /
instead of /data or /files.
If I was you I would first check the /etc/fstab
to make sure the mountpoints are still correct.
