Q TWRP Cannot wipe data/factory reset due to multiple lost+found folders
Using TWRP 220.127.116.11, I'm unable to wipe data. Every time I try, I get
"wiping data without wiping /data/media
E: error opening '/data/lost+found'
I excluded the nonessential bits, if anyone wants a full log (something something partition details), I can make one.
I using ES File Explorer with root explorer on, I checked out /data and found two lost+found folders, which I think is causing my issue. I've tried deleting just one, but a second one is automatically generated. If I delete them both, then they're automatically recreated as well. If I delete them both and then remake one immediately after, another one will be remade.
I also checked the rest of the /data folder, and I did not find any lost+found files, so I'm pretty sure it's just the folders messing things up
I checked this thread, but I didn't find anything useful
I ended up here after I accidentally wiped my internal storage with TWRP. I went from a 4.3 AOSP rom to 4.1.2 stock (HD RLS16). I wiped the 4.3 rom, but I think I accidentally wiped internal storage then as well, or maybe something was messed up with TWRP because the storage folder for 4.3 isn't in data/media (or at least not for the rom I was using). After that I used hyperdrive, which was super buggy with Gapps and didn't work at all. After adding an account, everything kept force closing, and things were extremely slow and took minutes to open, even after removing the account and wiping cache+dalvik.
I thought it had to do with the rom, so I went and wiped stuff, then went to CM 10.1.3 stable, but that didn't boot at all, so I tried wiping again and going to liquidsmooth 2.9, which is where my problems started again. I attempted to wipe again and go back to cm10.1.3. The wipe failed, but cm10.1.3 worked.
any ideas on how I can fix this? I was unable to find help on google.

Samsung galaxy s3: if you're having issues rebooting after flashing 4.3 roms, then go stock
, wipe a few times, and reroot
. Also make sure your bootloader is updated.
