Hello suraj123

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

If you setup a new backup point for the computer, that would create a point that would allow you to reset back to that specifc setup and date.


Unfortunately there is no way to modify the factory reset, as the purpose of it is to rid the unit of all changes and set it back to the factory setup.


Hope this answers your question, let us know how you get on
