    did you wipe the data partition or just the data/media(internal sdcard)?

    im sure there a way we can restore it, and no you "should" still have recovery..

    I had it plugged into the computer and was going through folders and for whatever reason I deleted it so it cleared both my internal and external storage. No pics no music no backups...nothing at all. I tried to drag and drop my vanilla ROM zip and gapps and it wouldn't go thru like nothing on my phone existed.

    lol...you know im forever getting myself into situations like this. no surprise at all. umm...the emulated folder was labeled storage in my sd card folder so it was like a storage inside a storage folder if that makes any sense. and no I haven't tried to odin. not once have I ever used that program so I don't know much about it

    All your pictures, music, videos are gone, but twrp and apps and data you can recreate. Just boot back into recovery and make a full backup of your ssystem. Boot into rom and backup all your apps and data again with whatever backup app you were using.

    Your pictures and stuff are gone forever tho hope youhad them backed up in another location, dropbox, photobucket, externel sd maybe?
