Default MAXX Dev end: unlock wipes user data?

Is it true that unlocking the boot loader on developer edition maxx erases all user data?

If so, anyone have ideas on how to back up as much as possible before doing so? I'm on 4.4 but not rooted.

Thanks in advance..

I found out the hard way. It wiped it during the unlock sequence. Not sure how to keep it from happening though.

Thanks. I bit the bullet, made sure I backed up what I could, then pulled the unlock trigger. As you said, it wiped everything.
