Default [Q] Wiped /cache now unable to access /sdcard

I screwed up a bit here. I was using the stock recovery to format my /cache partition but about 5 minutes in it froze. Figuring that something had went wrong i hard rebooted the phone and now when I boot it appears that my internal sdcard partition has disappeared.

In adb I tried to cd into /sdcard and the directory is missing entirely
Code:
Select Code
/system/bin/sh: cd: /sdcard: No such file or directory
same thing here
Code:
Select Code
shell@hammerhead:/ $ cd /storage/emulated/legacy                               
/system/bin/sh: cd: /storage/emulated/legacy: No such file or directory
My mountpoinits show no sign of sdcard anywhere
Code:
Select Code
127|shell@hammerhead:/ $ mount

tmpfs /dev tmpfs rw,seclabel,nosuid,relatime,mode=755 0 0

If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate them. I would really like to be able to recover my data from the device before I wipe it.

Here you go, just flash cache.img on this thread (method 2)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2513701
Your data may be lost at all so, if it does not work, then use flash-all method (method 1)

Remember - NEVER reboot your phone when it's trying to wipe. Some of these phones take an exceptionally long time to wipe depending on your recovery.
Nexus 5 - AICP
T-Mobile GS3 T999L - Dandroid - GONE
ATT GS3 i-747 - Intergalactic 3.0 - GONE
HTC Inspire 4G - many different ROMs - GONE
