Poco X3 internal storage empty in Windows after TWRP flash


Oct 11, 2019
Hello everyone!

I have encountered an issue after I flashed TWRP on my Poco X3 Pro (vayu).
The internal storage mounts fine (shows the actual size in the list instead of 0mb), but when I connect the phone via USB, the "Internal storage" disk is completely empty and file transfers aren't working.
Could somebody please help me out with this?
I had this issue before with another phone and was able to fix it by changing the file system and repairing it that way, but this time around the folder is empty even when internal storage mounts, which is weird.
I'm using TWRP 3.5.2, flashed using "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img"

I'd really appreciate a solution.

Thank you.

EDIT: So I reflashed the TWRP recovery using the method above and was able to see the internal storage in Windows properly. Then, after installing, I used the "Format data" function and rebooted into system. It booted fine and it seems to be working well so far.
