    It's a matter of personal preference, but yeah you could wipe D in Disk Management first, then reset.

    That's what I was trying to ask earlier but I must have confused you in what I meant
    I was asking if it would be better to ignore the select all drives option in Reset PC where it shows drive D: listed. The reason I asked that was because you said it was Odd and you couldn't understand why drive D: was being shown as an option there at all.
    By asking if I should go into Disk Management and wipe drive D: manually it would ensure that it had been done correctly...that's why I mentioned that method?
    Ive seen people discuss on here disconnecting any secondary drives before doing a clean installation to ensure windows files cant get written to it by mistake during Windows setup. I never disconnect any of my drives. So I thought that if before I Reset PC I went into Disk Management and deleted the volume on the D: drive leaving the D: drive unallocated that it would completely rule out that possibility. Then after Windows installation has finished I could go into Disk Management and prepare the D: drive for use , creating a New Simple Volume. What do you think?

    I think that would be the best method to use Disk Management as you described.

    Thanks very much Shawn for all your help and patience. Sorry to take up so much of your time tonight. I just needed to be sure I had explained things correctly and we hadn't got our wires crossed

    > You will not be able to reset Windows from Settings if you have User Account Control (UAC) set to always notify you about system changes.

    I believe this may have applied on Windows 8, but I can't believe it still applies on Windows 10.

    There's no mention of it at Recovery options in Windows 10 or anywhere else I can find.

    (I just tested it with UAC set to maximum for notify system changes.)

    You're correct @NMI,

    I just tested on my system, and the UAC setting no longer applies for this anymore.

    Hi Shawn,
    I'm a little confused with Keep my files:
    - Removes any apps your PC manufacturer installed. (If your PC came with Windows 10, apps from your PC manufacturer will be reinstalled.)
    It removes and reinstall?
