hey guys its been kinda long since i last flashed but i was changing my rom to magio and as a usual procedure i selected dalvik cache,cache,system,android_secure,and data to wipe...after the wipe installed rom and fired up my phone...then was restoring a game..after i restored,to my horror i saw that my "Android" folder(which keeps obb and data) was completely wiped
i have no idea how that happened as i never selected sd_card wipe

so does the data wipe option also delete the Android folder?
i remember clearly that in the old days i did select data wipe/factory reset in recovery but it didn't remove my Android folder

Using latest TWRP 2.6.3.0 btw

Wipe system..That..But when you are flashing a new rom you have to do that..Cause your ROM will have errors..
