My confusion of the distinction is: will it wipe my laptop blank or restore it to the point it was at when I started it following purchasing it (all the basic programs and such already installed)?
Thank you for reading.
When you restore your computer to factory settings, your computer will be like it was when you powered it up the first time. You will lose all of your personal data along with your Windows settings and programs.
