    With cloud installation, Windows downloads new system files from Microsoft's servers and uses them to reinstall Windows on your computer.

    If you want to restore from Acer, you need Acer recovery media, not available in all countries.

    If you do the cloud reset all your acer specific apps and utilities will be lost. Sometimes that's OK, sometimes you find that some functionality you use is then missing… A cloud reset will come from Microsoft's servers.
