Summary0007236: Kali installation formats home partition
DescriptionWhen you are installing Kali Linux and select a home partition, even if you mark it as "don't format", it will format anyway. Unfortunately, this happened to me about a hour ago, I was unable to recover my data even with TestDisk.
Steps To Reproduce1. Select your home partition on the Kali graphical installation
2. Mark it as "don't format"
3. Wait for it to install.
4. When it installs, your home directory will be with the default data.
Additional InformationI am absolutely sure that I checked the "Don't format" option.
