    Thank you

    Unfortunately, I don't think you have a choice in what can be restored. It's all or none, aside from app information.

    just as libra said, there ain't a way to select what you want to restore. But see, when you restore, all the settings and all get restored completely, and the apps as well. All you gotta do is uninstall the unwanted apps. Other than that, i dont think there is anything else that gets restored. (accounts, settings, wallpapers, ringtones, contacts, messages, and apps.)

    Or, before resetting everything, go to "settings", "update and backup", there go to "backup". And you shall see an option in it called "more options" at the bottom. Press it. It shall open backup options. There if you wait for a minute, an entire list of apps that are allowed to be backed up will come. You can untick them. And then press the backup now button. It shall back up. Once done, restore your device. :)

    Both the solutions will work fine.
    it is upto you to decide.
    I can show you the difference.

    if you reset without backup, your phone will remain on the build of windows that you are on right now.
    and if you use the recovery tool, you will be pushed back to an old but reliable build, and you will have to upgrade your way to the current build.

    it is up to you to decide if you want to continue with the current build or no. :)

    Do you know how to upgrade to Windows 10 build from 8.1?

    I had 10 before using the recovery tool (from PC). It put me back to 8.1. I want my 10 back!!! :-)

    download the UPGRADE ADVISOR app from Windows Store and use the app to find out if an upgrade is available. You can download the 3GB Windows10 Mobile update.
