    Restoring to new does exactly that.
    Factory firmware is reinstalled and all personal info, files, and settings are erased.
    You can always restore from a backup but then you risk recreating the problem that you were trying to fix with the restore.

    If you do a restore like this will you be able to get your app data back, i am thinking of stuff like programs that store password data, or ones like evernote
