Will "Lack Storage Booting" erase data?

Will performing "Lack Storage Booting" erase any data? My phone is stuck on my provider's splash screen, I've tried basic troubleshooting, don't want to try a factory reset because my info is not backed up.

My phone is beyond full (Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime), less than 1 gb left . Sounds like L.S.B. is worth a shot so that I could at least access my data to transfer or delete files to free up space, but not if it will erase data. Thanks!

according to google you wont lose data by using this function. but if you found your phone laggy restart it thrice and go to RECOVERY MODE and select clear cache.

Thank you, I've tried the "wipe cache partition" but that didn't do the trick. But I can try your suggestion.

So far from what I've found on Google it doesn't sound like L.S.B. will delete data. Most of the Google search results are from other group posts so just want to be 100% sure before I try it .
