Default odin pc doesn't erase everything??

hey guys i was under the impression that if i flashed stock firmware using the pc version of odin it was supposed to format my phone to clean without having to use recovery to delete everything.
this isn't the case with me, odin pc (ver 1.85) seems to be dirty flashing these stock roms on my phone if i don't wipe in recovery.
is this right or is something wrong here?

I've seen the same thing. It doesn't necessarily wipe the internal sd card

That's the way all the version of Odin PC work.
That's why it's always best to go into recovery and do a clean wipe including data,
system, cache, dalvik cache and last but not least do a "Factory Reset" in recovery.
Doing it that way always gives the best results. (it does not wipe the sdcard)

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
