    I'm preparing to flash a rom on my one and wanted to know if wiping data and resetting to factory settings will erase the backup created(since its on the local disk)?

    I am also curious about this. It's not clear to me whether or not the backups are on a wipe data "safe" partition, or just general storage. I plan to bounce the backups all over to a pc, to be on the safe side, prior to going to the CM12 nightlies.

    I wouldn't risk it. Push everything to a PC then do the wipe.
