Best features of the new Windows 8 are PC refresh and reset.it is very usefull to the users other than other OS of microsoft

              I found this shortly after Microsoft released the developer preview of Windows 8, but it seems like it’s come along a lot since that preview.
The process for resetting a PC does the following:
The PC boots into the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE).
Windows RE erases and formats the hard drive partitions on which Windows and personal data reside (there’s a ‘quick’ and a ‘thorough’ option here where the ‘thorough’ option overwrites user data with random data to prevent recovery).
Windows RE installs a fresh copy of Windows.
The PC restarts into the newly installed copy of Windows.
Refreshing a PC works as follows:
The PC boots into Windows RE.
Windows RE scans the hard drive for your data, settings, and apps (only Metro apps … not other applications), and puts them aside (on the same drive).
Windows RE installs a fresh copy of Windows.
Windows RE restores the data, settings, and apps it has set aside into the newly installed copy of Windows.
The PC restarts into the newly installed copy of Windows.
In the Windows 8 beta, the following settings are preserved:
Wireless network connections
Mobile broadband connections
BitLocker and BitLocker To Go settings
Drive letter assignments
Personalization settings such as lock screen background and desktop wallpaper
The following are lost:
File type associations
Display settings
Windows Firewall settings
                 I’ve tested these features as present in the developer preview on a number of systems and found them to be very effective and it works well.
The refresh and reset mechanism is also built into boot-up troubleshooting mechanism.
