Sony Vaio Factory Reset

I have a Sony Vaio E series, and I'd like to do a factory reset. Once I am in the factory reset, there are 6 options, two of them are "Restore C: Drive" and "Restore Complete System"
I dont know if I understand there two options correctly, please help me.
For "Restore C drive" it will only restore the C drive with the OS on it, all other drive will have no effect. What happend if in the past, I create a partition from the original C? Will it be reversed?
For the "complete system" all drives which mean the harddrive will be brought back to the factory condition.
THanks

Consult the Manual on the Sony Support Downloads webpage for your model.

Another option for a much better install without all the bloatware and duplicate Sony utilities which interfere with much better versions built into Win7 is to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you have data you want keep on the other other partitions then just restore the C partition.
