Perform a factory data reset on your Galaxy tablet
You can perform a factory data reset on your tablet to restore its default settings or delete all of your personal information. This feature is helpful when you want to start fresh. It's also useful if you need to get rid of personal data before sending the tablet in for repair, or giving it to a friend or family member to use.

Note: Your personal information cannot be recovered after using this feature. Please save any information you need prior to using this feature.
When it's time to reset your tablet, all it takes is a few simple steps.
From Settings, search for and select Factory data reset. Tap Factory data reset one more time, and then review the information. When you're ready, tap Reset. If you have a lock screen set up, enter your security information, and then, if prompted, enter your Samsung account password. Finally, tap Delete all.
The process may take a few minutes while your tablet removes your personal data and restores itself to its original state.
Note: A factory data reset will not affect microSD cards.
