When a Windows 10 PC hangs, freezes, crashes, or gets stuck, users often refresh the computer. However, some unknown problems with the system can lead the users to reset their PC to the factory settings.

Being different from Windows 10 refresh, Windows 10 reset changes your PC and turns it into a totally new machine. This brings your Windows 10 laptop or desktop to the state when it was first turned on. That is to say, if you don't have a system backup before the reset, you'll permanently lose all the files including photos, documents, as well as a large amount of data downloaded from the internet. However, do you still have a chance to recover lost files after Windows 10 reset? (If you are also a Mac user, you may also be interested in how to reset Mac without losing data.)
