This article details the various ways of restoring your system to how it was originally shipped by Dell or alternatively restoring your system to a previous date from a stored recovery image or from a previously completed backup. The benefits of creating an image over a clean install is that this way is usually quicker with fewer steps to complete and will include all settings and software that came with the machine when it was first set up. The only drawback of this type of solution is that it requires you to have had the forethought to have followed the instructions out of the box and to have created something to recover to and will take you back to the state the machine was in when the image was done.
The benefits of Backing up your data, is that it allows for limited recovery, short of reinstalling everything. The Drawback is it rarely includes software, unless specially configured to do so.
