Ubuntu – erase ubuntu and reinstall will it affect windows and other windows partitions


I am trying to install a fresh version of Ubuntu in my computer without touching the windows 10 dual boot!

In the Installation Type, the first option seems exactly what i wanted to do.

enter image description here

My question is, is this feature is safe to use? because i don't want to lose any windows files and other NTFS partitions on the hard-disk. Please eliminate my confusion.

Note as that i dont need any files or media which are in the ubuntu partition, Thanks.

It's saying that the partition that you have created as logical, i.e,

/dev/sda7 which is of type swap and

the partition /dev/sda8 of type ext4

will be formatted and made clean to make space for the new installation of Ubuntu OS.
