How Do I Perform A Complete Restore In Samsung Recovery Solution 4?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Samsung Recovery Solution 4

This restores the PC to the condition it was in when the Complete Backup was made. If a Complete Backup was never made, this can still be used to restore the PC to its initial status. (Out of the Box condition)

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. Also, note that any programs installed after the Complete Backup will still need to be reinstalled.


     • If you have data that you need to save, create a Data Backup before performing a Complete Restore. With Data Backup you can save your files to an external device and then use Data Restore to load those files back onto the PC.

     • If the computer powers on, but Windows does not load, press the F4 Key at the Samsung logo when you first power on the computer, and then go to step 2.
