Factory setting restoration cleans your PC and sets it back to the stage when it was first bought. When you reset your system to factory settings, you might lose all the data saved on the system. Burn all your important files to a CD or store on a memory stick. You might lose each bit of information that you had stored in your computer including the programs that you had installed, such as Microsoft Office.
Backup software programs and drivers
You need to keep backup copies of software programs that are installed on the system. You need to take a backup of the device drivers also. Without these drivers, the system cannot function properly. After restoring the factory settings, you might lose all the drivers that might cause more damage to your system. So, you always need to keep backup copies of important drivers and software programs.
You need to reinstall all the drivers that are present on the system after restoring the system to the factory settings. Otherwise, the devices that are added later on might not work. Also, all the data and software programs saved on the system, including all the files, might get lost forever when you perform a system restore.
