the already included reset will blow away non store apps and plenty of other things (like plenty of settings, and a lot of drivers, etc.).

what this new feature seems to be is the good old fashioned "in place upgrade" people use to do in the olden days - that is, for example, update Windows XP SP2 with all updates to Windows XP SP2 with all updates. It's using the upgrade feature, but you upgrade to the same version - this leaves all files, programs, apps, and drivers untouched, as well as most settings across the entire system. There are ways to do this today, but it can be more cumbersome on modern windows verse the olden days.

so its seem this new feature is basically the same thing, but it uses Windows Update to just redo the current version of the OS, so similar to using a disc or usb drive in the past.

its good they are adding this, but with the way WU and Windows in general has worked since W10, it should have been here already. Better late than never, I suppose.
