    Will Refreshing Windows Restore Synced Settings to Their Default?

    Does it delete (or restore to default) my synced settings in Microsoft Account if i refresh my Windows 8? I need it because i will have problems (e.g. some metro applications are crashing) if i sync back from Microsoft Account to my PC. I can disable sync for all users from Group Policy and then switch to Microsoft Account. But i want change synced data, snyc my new PC settings to my account.

    Will refreshing Windows help me or is there any way to delete Windows 8 sync data in Microsoft Account?

    Unless you're signed into your Microsoft account, nothing will be lost though the syncing. You can change the sync data by simply changing whatever, it'll sync up. It doesn't save to your puter, it saves the data to a cloud.

    I would say refreshing would help, but if you're having issues with metro app, I've had success running sfc /scannow in command prompt.
