Are you fed up with the way your computer is acting and want it to be just like it was when it was brand new? Maybe you’re a nice person and are giving your computer away to someone in need, however you don’t want to give away all your personal information along with it.  Or maybe you want to sell that old computer that you just replaced.

There are a lot of reasons to restore your computer.  And there is a right way and a wrong way to do it.  Just running the built in system restore will not remove your personal files and data from the computer, it will just make it harder to find.

Did you run the system restore on your computer only to notice you still need your files or photos that were on the computer?  See our Data Recovery section.
