Replacing a partition, is this real?

Hi all,
I have an install that does not update anymore (too crippled) so I try a new install, trying to retain the data…
In Calmares, I get to the partitioning screen, where I get three options, one being “replace a partition”. I have the option to select a partition, so, if I select the existing one, will it “replace/upgrade” the existing one? For real?
If so, this is so super cool :slight_smile:

I think it will format the partition first, not upgrade it.

It is the first installer with an automated “Replace Partition” option, which makes it easy to reuse a partition over and over for distribution testing.

Suits me fine :slight_smile: as long as the data need’nt be replaced

Sure. It will do if your files are not on the same partition.

They’re not, I follow the install suggestions in that, because I do know the benefits :slight_smile:
