Default Quick question about storage

Hey so I had this problem last time. Since HTC is all solid state memory. If I were to download a Rom on my phone and do as they say in the post. " factory reset " how would I be able to install a Rom? It would be wiped away with the factory reset.

In a custom recovery, such as TWRP, a factory reset doesn't wipe the entire data partition, it leaves the files under /data/media which is where the internal /sdcard is mounted. If you place the ROM zip on /sdcard won't be removed during the reset.

So in the SD card portion of the memory. It'll be set up in data/media ? When I download a Rom I shouldn't worry when doing a reset since it won't remove the Rom zip file before flashing ?
