Please someone tells me when to perform the wipe, what kind of wipe, how many, and when they are needed. I'm making a mess!

Per favore qualcuno mi spiega quando esegire i wipe, che tipo di wipe, quanti, e quando sono necessari. Sto facendo confusione!

To do a wipe go into the recovery (Power and Vol+), select English (if you have MiRecovery, the standard xiaomi recovery) and go into the Wipe menu. Then you can wipe cache and dalvik cache, data or sd-card (or all of these, with a wipe all data/full wipe).
Wiping cache/dalvik cache you delete some files that you don't need. It's useful when you update your ROM
Wiping data you delete all your applications and data. It's useful when yiu change type of ROM.
Wiping sd-card you delete all that you see with the file manager. Whatsapp data (that isn't in /data), DCIM (photos), Download (all your downloads, also your rom .zip file). I don't when you need, I never wiped sd-card.

They must be made before the upgrade of the Rom, or after?
