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.

WARNING: A Complete restore erases all current files,settings, programs, and other data and replaces them with the files, settings, programs, and other data contained in the Complete Backup. In other words, it restores your computer to the way it was when you made the Complete Backup. If you have any current files you do not want to lose, back them up to a flash drive, floppy disk, CD, DVD, or other external media before you perform the Complete Restore. Also, note that any programs you installed after you made the Complete Backup you use in the Complete Restore will have to be reinstalled.
