I have system restore and an image of my system on a usb drive.
I am confused about "refresh" and "File recovery".
If I refresh, should I click on any key when prompted to if I have a disc in the machine. Is it true I will only have to restore the 3rd party programs I had prior to this?

Win file recovery; how does this differ from the native backup and restore and system restore?

Would a system image be a better choice than either of these or do they have their place.
Thank you for clarifying these features for me.
