What is the difference between a Basic Restore and a Complete Restore on Samsung Recovery?

Last Update date : 2017.09.08

Samsung Notebooks come with a Samsung Recovery Solution for backup and restore functions.





A Basic Restore reloads all the Windows Operating System files and leaves all personal files, programs and settings intact.  By reloading the Windows operating system, a Basic restore can fix many Windows related problems.

A Complete Restore uses a Complete Backup to restore your system to the condition it was in when the Complete Backup was made.  If you have no stored Complete Backups, you can still use the Complete Restore function to restore your computer to its initial status.
