A factory reset will not wipe your SD card...It is not supposed to...Its not an error...to wipe your SD card go to mounts and storage and choose format media....

Your internal storage (SD card partition) will be untouched... That's what I am saying...all your apps and everything is on your internal storage...To get rid of the apps you need to format the data partition and to get rid of all your media you format the media partition...

AFAIK, your files aren't present on /sd/ext, but in /data/media/0. That's why everything remains on your "internal storage".

P.S: @NeoTrix , remember me?
