Full restore

A full restore is the opposite of a full save or file-save. A full restore is the process of reloading the entire file system from either a file-save tape or from the original sys-gen media provided with your system.

The full restore is usually performed from the options prompt, where the choices are typically:

a ABS load
f full restore
x coldstart
Warning: When performing a full restore from a good file-save, it is not necessary to reload the D3 data file from the original sys-gen media. The file-save tape contains the files needed and provided by D3, unless they were deliberately not saved on the file-save.
