Default Camera app says "Insert an SD card before using the camera"

So I just connected my phone to the computer, where I found an extra TitaniumBackup folder. The said folder was located in storage/emulated. Here, the "storage" folder itself was located in the Internal Storage, that shows up on the PC. (I hope I'm clear)

Since there was a more current TitaniumBackup folder already sitting in the root, I decided to delete the extra one inside the sdcard folder.

After deleting, I've lost everything I had on the device. I checked in a file explorer app, and all I had in the internal memory was the Android folder. Apps are working fine at the moment, but camera app asks me to insert an SD card. The amount of free space also suggests all data has been wiped.

What do I do rectify this? I'm guessing remounting in recovery should do it, but I'm not sure. A simple reboot could fix it too I guess, but I'm not sure again.

Oh yes, it's storage that I deleted, not sdcard

It's a mirror storage link that also the same as your main storage.

Deleting the storage meaning deleting your main storage too I would assumed.

Edit:
For the camera asking to insert new SDcard or something. You need to clear data in Settings - Apps for camera.
And the rest of your data in your storage is gone for good now.

Cleared the camera app data, didn't help. You'd say a reboot should help?

If clearing data and a reboot doesn't work it's factory reset time, at least that would be the easiest way.
