As i can see here Data is shared between both sys1 n sys2.. how m i supposed to change that.. ( Recovery with dualboot enabled will do ??)

yes,
after flashing a TDB (True DualBoot) recovery, and enable TDB, the data will not share between System 1 and 2

I use it for a couple of time,
System 1 - WIUI
System 2 - different Roms (always Switch between stable and dev)

no probs so far
