Does ClockworkMod Recovery's “Wipe Data” command also wipe the SD card?

I've been using non wipe roms and I'm planning to do a full wipe, my backups etc are on the internal sd card.

Does the above option in cwm also wipe the internal sd card?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


This would make no sense, because the main use of wiping from ClockworkMod is to install a new ROM from SD card. As certain devices (e.g., Nexus S) do not have an external SD card, wiping the internal storage marked as "SD card" would wipe the ROM you are about to install.
