backup and restor center
so i want to restore my comp to factory settings but be able to restore my pics and music and what not
so im using the back up feature right now and backing up all those files to E:
since my computer has a built in section of the hard drive just for restoring to factory settings, vs. a bunch of discs, will it still wipe the hard drive and eliminate any errors/viruses/worms ? also, will I be able to recover my pictures and music and things
these are very important , especially the music
but im worried that because i will be wiping everything when i restore, it will wipe out the backup files that im creating...? am I stupid?
