We can see that Windows 8 will provide two options to restore a computer. The first is the common System Restore feature that Microsoft has been using since Windows ME allowing a user to restore their computer to a previous point in time. The second is the new ‘Restore to the original factory settings’ option that will remove all programs installed and restore Windows to its default settings. This feature should significantly cut down on the time required to reinstall Windows 8 while still preserving user files.
