Default CWM doubt

Hey Guys, I have a Nexus 4 running on stock 4.3 rooted.
I copied the CM 11 M Snapshot files and using CWM wiped everything. as it turns out it also wiped my sd ext. Thankfully I had a backup and got all my data back. Is there a way so that it doesnt wipe the Sd ext? I had a Nexus S before this and it didn't get wiped everytime I flash

I understand his question just fine...

There is no "sd ext" on the current Nexus devices. It is simply called sdcard. The sdcard shouldn't be erased unless you format /data, because /sdcard is located at /data/media. In the future, just use factory reset in recovery and the sdcard won't be wiped.

I did the factory reset. But my entire media also got wiped. Although it doesn't happen with twrp. I guess I'll stick with twrp then. Thanks anyhow.

Just because you don't understand, doesn't mean nobody else did. My words make perfect sense to anyone who can read English and knows a thing or two about android development.

Impossible, wipe data/factory reset doesn't format sdcard. Under mounts/storage (if i remember right) you can just delete media files.

It seemed odd to me too. I guess its a problem with CWM Touch? I'll try to get screenshots if I can
