    Factory settings with keeping D drive?


    Hi i need some help.
    I have one Windows 10 Pro 32bit version
    It is slow.
    So i need to do factory reset.
    But i need to keep files on drive D
    Which option should i use in recovery window
    - Windows which will pop up if you type in search reset and then click on button Get Started (Factory settings)
    first - keep files and remove programs and settings
    second - remove everything

    Thanks for help.

    If it were me, I would do a clean install by booting from a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive or DVD. Select the custom install option and then you can delete all the partitions except your data partition to ensure that your data partition does not get erased.
