    Hello
    I installed the ROM “lineage-16.0-20190910-UNOFFICIAL-herolte.zip” on my Samsung S7 Herolte smartphone.
    I noticed that I can not access the “Data” partition in Recovery TWRP after reboot of the system under Android Pie (which works quite normally)
    I can not “mount” this partition “Data” either
    For this reason, I can not perform a “Nandrioid” comlplet of my smrtphone with TWRP.
    Does the version “lineage-16.0-20180917-” avoid this partition problem “Data”?
    Thank you for your information and for all your work.
    Best regards
