Question about Computers & Internet
So that we're "on the same page" - I describe the recovery and restore terms below.
A "system recovery" usually involves booting the computer via a special CD(s) or DVD(s) that were either supplied with the computer or you were directed to create when you first set up the computer. It also is a way to start and recreate the original data on the hard drive on a computer from a special partition on the hard drive that normally is not accessible; except for these situations. If you perform a system recovery, the computer's hard disk will be returned to the state it was when it was first purchased. If you do perform a system restore, everything - and I do mean everything; that has been added, removed, installed, etc. since that very first day will be GONE. Some people also call this "re-imaging" the hard disk. You should do this only after copying all files that you need. Furthermore - a system restore is a better first choice. Keep in mind, any hardware that has been replaced or added will probably not work as expected after a system recovery. Support drivers and software will be required to be installed to get the hardware to work correctly once again.
Microsoft describes their System Restore program for Vista and Windows 7. A FAQ can be found here.
