Consider not choosing option that keeps your files if you want total reset

by Legit Labs In reply to How to perform a total sy ...

I'll just add a little more info that hasn't yet been said.

You have two options to reset Windows 10, so it depends what you mean by "total" reset.

If you navigate to Start menu > Settings > Update and Security > Recovery > Reset, you'll then get the option to keep your files or not keep them.

Choosing the option that keeps your files isn't a factory reset. So if by "full reset" you mean factory reset, you'll need to choose the option for not keeping the files.
