Maybe reset means 'when we need to give away or pass the PC'

I see, but it seems clean install = write more compare to reset
as reset seems like fresh install hmm.gif

but from what I Google, got 2 types of reset
1. keep my files (quite useless I would say)
2. remove everything (sounds like format like lot of people say, or fresh install, whatever it called)

from number 2, can break up another 2 category
1. just remove my files (which I am interested on doing this)
2. remove files and clean the drive (according to the info it said that only use it if you going to sell / give to others)

i'm just used to the way i do things so i don't use and learn much about the reset thing. i always do diskpart > clean before doing installation. this way i can make sure all things are wiped (i use a dedicated os disk; so it's only os on the ssd; nothing else)

i don't bother about writes on ssd. for os disk-only setups, writes are really relatively minimal. for instance, i only consumed about 3.6tb of total host writes for the time span of 4 years+; wear level is reported at 98% only (samsung oem sm841, mlc 512gb, op 20%; assuming standard tbw of 72tb); note that i reformat this machine at least twice a year.

keep my files option probably a renamed feature called "refresh my pc" from windows 8/8.1,which basicaly reinstall your windows system files without losing your files,this option is useful thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif is your system have been infected by virus and it damaged your windows or changed your system setting/files.

the option 2 is going to remove all of your files then it going to do disk wipe(which overwrite the sector of freespace),to prevent someone recovering your personal data(since windows just forget the file after being delete) then you sell it,that why it use for then you sell your pc,is i wrong correct me

i think i would do the following:

1. if sell definitely reformat it, manually.
2. if give to people i trust i will just reset without removing the files ie application files

it's just my old habit since w7, and after gone through w8.x and w10 upgrade paths. the main problem with upgrades is that each time you did it additional partitions were created. you will end up having many unused system partitions in your os drive. (it's an eye sore to me so i just wipe everything clean and start over hehe)

hi, I'm going to create a bootable usb for windows 10 using a newly bought usb. question is do I have to format the usb to FAT32 first before using Microsoft Media Creation tool? or I can just directly use the usb as it is?
