Operation Hard Reset literally means ‘hard reset’. This operation in everyday life has several names. Among them are Master Reset, Cold Boot and Hard Reset, reset, full reboot and so on.
One may wonder, why is such an operation necessary? The thing is that the higher-tech device, the greater the chances that failures can occur in its system. It can be both unstable functioning (network loss, inability to find GPS satellites, braking, etc.), and tablet failure will turn on.
Each mobile gadget (including the Acer Iconia Tab A500, A501) has an internal protected non-volatile area where all system files are stored.
If the operating system is malfunctioning, the developer, just in case, has provided a combination of keys, holding them down, the tablet owner will be able to independently return the operating system to its original form. This is what a combination of Hard Reset words means.
Of course, after such an operation, all files, settings, contacts and programs that you saved in the phone’s memory are deleted. This is done in order to surely remove the cause of system failures. According to the experience of specialists, such an operation will solve 90% of all problems associated with the operating system.

If a memory card is inserted in your tablet, it is advisable to remove it for a while. Do this in order not to accidentally damage the file system.
In general, in theory, when rebooting, the memory card should not be affected, but there were cases when, after formatting the system, it was necessary to format the card for it to work correctly in the future.
As we know, formatting suggests deleting all files. Sure, you can try to recover the information, but still it’s better to play it safe and get a memory card for the duration of the Hard Reset.
