Installer allows erasure of partitions with one click?

Post by TL7 » Wed Apr 25, 2018 6:02 am

The Linux Mint installer, on the partition selection menu, has a + and a - button.

I noticed, that pressing - removes partitions without confirmations.

No actual changes will get into effect at that stage. This is still a graphical representation for giving you the possibility to re-partition your disk. First when you go ahead with the install process you will see a box with all the changes that will be written to the disk. Even then you can still back out if you want to change something.

Added to the post by Marziano: There is a revert button on the right side, which can undo changes, until you are on that window.

Oh, I just noticed that. Thanks.
