Hi guys,

I was on the MIUI 9.6 8.3.15 EU-rom and when I wanted to update to the 8.3.22 release I accidentally selected a Global-ROM zip-file. As a result of that my phone only boots to TWRP and it states that my internal storage is empty. I can't access any of my media files anymore.

One solution would be to format the entire phone and lose everything. However since I forgot to back-up my media files I am looking for a solution that would save the pictures that I shot, all other files are irrelevant to me.

Does anyone know a solution to the above mentioned problem? So restore functionality and retrieve the photos I shot.

Flash a TWRP that supports latest miui, then you can see your files.
Wait for others tho
I tried both TWRP 3.1.1-0 and TWRP 3.2.1-0. Both versions do not provide me with access to my files. I am starting to believe they are actually gone since it does mount in Windows and states that the internal storage had 51.6 out of 51.6 GB a available. There is supposed to be more though right?

Suggestion:
Open recovery TWRP and use backup function, after that use USB Cable or OTG to save your backup on other device, after this, flash ;)
