Does a factory reset erase everything?

Honored Guest

If I had to reset the device like how I first got it do I lose everything?

Hey @phealboy14.2024, welcome to the forums! I understand that a factory reset might make you feel like you're losing everything, but don't worry. As long as you sign back into your account during setup, you'll still have all your games and apps accessible. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I want to make sure you're having a great time with your games!

Hi @phealboy14.2024  please see this link for details on a factory reset

But please note the information on cloud backup - make sure you enable that before the reset if you want to keep your save points in games.

Big PC, all the headsets, now using Quest 3

Ok well that’s why everything gone we couldn’t do nothing but reset it it was only showing a black screen

I did everything gone 

If you didn't back up to the cloud, you'd only lose your save game data. All your purchases are secure on your account. Make sure you didn't accidentally create a new account, I've noticed many users do this after a factory reset.
