Default [Q] Internal Storage Unrecognized

I'm not sure what happened exactly. I woke up one morning and my internal storage is gone. Apps can't access it. Mounting from recovery mode does not help either. I don't recall changing any settings before this happened. I have no idea what caused it. Anyone know of a fix?

Have you tried formatting? Did you perform a factory reset from the bootloader at any point?

I have not yet tried formatting. I was thinking about that last night but I just didn't get around to it. I've been holding off on a factory reset just so I could see if there was a way to get the storage recognized without losing anything. I'll try it as soon as I can.

Wait, I didn't say to perform a factory reset from the bootloader, I asked if you had. Performing a factory reset from the bootloader causes the sd card to become corrupt.

Don't worry, I didn't do a factory reset and now I don't plan to. Haha. I will try formatting when I get home.

I'm having trouble figuring out how to format. Could you help me out with this? My computer doesn't even recognize my phone.
