This time, when I cleared the policy I had earlier modified, it went back to normal.

Made a recovery disk under maintenance, exactly what can it do?

It is not that big, so what does it restore? Updates? personal files? The entire system os?
Will windows be as it was or will things be missing?

Going from 32 bit to 64 bit, keep harddrive user files?

I accidentally installed 32 bit, and want 64 bit.
