    what are you trying to do exactly?

    For the wipe go to settings, security and privacy, security wipe. Use BB Link to reinstall everything if you have backup otherwise the device will be like stock and you can setup as new

    Doing the security wipe will not remove the OS?

    My PlayBook is slowing down, probably lots of excess garbage from loading and deleting many programs. I would like to restore it to it's best configuration and just do fresh installs of the few programs I use on a regular basis.

    Thks

    Will that speed up the processing or do I need to do a full wipe and reinstall the OS from scratch?

    BB Link to reinstall everything. Whoa never ever worked for me? Not on PB anyway. New version locks U out unless it finds a BB10 device.

    In my experience a security wipe leaves the Playbook flying when you use it again. Personally I never bother backing up anything. If there are files or photos I want, sure I'll drag and drop them to the PC. Otherwise I just reinstall the apps from BB World and upload saved sideloads from the PC as normal.

    It's time consuming, but much of it can be left to do overnight anyway.
