    Yes, reset will remove all your files, returning it to the state when you bought the laptop.

    Search for 'Windows reset refresh' and you'll find the info you need.

    You will need to do a REFRESH to keep your files.

    A reset will nuke everything on the Drive. if you have another, additional drive plugged in like a random SD card, it won't be touched.

    A refresh preserves files, but still nukes legacy programs and some system stuff.
