Bug Description

I recently decided to move to Ubuntu 13.10 (by move I mean install from a burned ISO - not and upgrade)

My Hard Drive had 3 partitions

    SWAP partition
    LINUX partition (ext4)
    NTFS partition with 500GB of DATA

When selecting the option "remove Ubuntu 12 and replace it with Ubuntu 13" the installer decided to REMOVE THE NTFS and make and used all disk.

If the option is called REPLACE UBUNTU the behaviour should be to reuse the SWAP and EXT4 partition of the version 12.04

Since a NTFS DATA PARTITION IS NOT PART OF UBUNTU 12 I think the text should read "USE WHOLE DISK TO INSTALL UBUNTU 13 REPLACING UBUNT 12" and in the details specify that ALL DATA OF THE WHOLE HARD DRIVE THAT HAS NOT BEEN BACKUP WILL BE LOST

If more information is needed I can provide it
