Default [Q] I want to wipe internal storage

Hi
I want to wipe my device's internal storage but I have some questions about it first:
Do I just need to tick wipe internal storage on TWRP?
Will it influence my ROM?
If it won't, will I be able to use the GApps?
Thanks in advance guys

That'll work, but be careful. It'll wipe all your data and any stored backups, including nandroids, tibu, etc. It won't wipe the Google apps.

One more thing:
Will the device add the missing default folders (Download, Music, etc)?

Idk, I never formatted just the internal. You might have to reflash the rom. Or they'll be added when they're needed. I know they come back there somehow but after you format you might not see then on your pc. If you go ahead with it let me know. I'd like to know for the future.

I did it yesterday and it deleted all of my internal storage and after some time, the default folders came back
