Question [Q] Full Wipe and Titanium Backup

hi guys,

I am a longterm flasher with older htcs, but new to htc one. I want to update and full wipe my Insertcoin Rom, i don't want to lose all of my apps and data, therefore i have made an titanmium backup.

Now I have read that htc had changed some things about the way directiories are handled when full wiping, maybe resulting in loosing everything on the phone.

my question:

Do i lose my backup from titanium in /sdcard/ when I do a full wipe?

thanks in advance

If you have already unlocked bootloader, and what you are referring to as Full wipe is wiping data/cache and system via recovery (cwm/twrp) then you will not lose data on /data/data where TiBu backup files are located.

small correction if I may, sdcard/internal storage redirects to /data/media/ (on android 4.1.2) or /data/media/0/ (on android 4.2.2+)
