Default Formatting sd

I want to format my phone to clean all the crap files iv accumulated. If I format through twrp, will it just reinstall the current rom I'm running? Did this before on my s4, just want to make sure. Thanks guys

Like internal storage you meant? I always do that on top of cache and dalvik wipe to get a full clean install and no trace of previous rom. To be on safe side always have nand backup when doing that.

Yeah like if I go to wipe, then select all except system or that also?

Factory reset, advance wipe, then I wipe cache, dalvik, system, data and internal storage. I have all my back ups in external card including copy of titanium backup for data. Then I flash any custom rom.
