I have in my old laptop, one harddisk which is split in two equal sized partitions. Partition C got the windows xp boot and some odd files that i don't care much for since i always do a backup regularly of the C partition.
The other partition, D is seldom backupped, as I do know a new windows installation do not affect the D partition, it only wipe the C and reinstalls there.
My question is therefore: When I see the screenshots of the Ubuntu installation process, I see the option to wipe the disk and install Ubuntu. Does that mean it wipes both of my partitions, or is there an expert option somewhere that allows me to wipe only the C partition, and keep the D partition untouched, and I would still have full access to my photos and other files there?
Thank you :)
