What do Windows 8 Refresh and Reset my PC really do?
I have heard about the new Windows 8 feature, the option to "refresh your PC."
Apparently, it lets you in essence reinstall Windows while keeping your applications. I was wondering how does that actually work? How can it do a clean install yet keep your applications installed? Wouldn't it need to have all the original setup.exe's etc. to reinstall your apps after it reinstalls Windows?
