Question 8 months ago on Introduction

How can I restore my VisionTab running Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 to an earlier backup or do a factory reset when the touch screen isn't responding well enough to navigate passed the login screen as a result of performing an unnecessary touch screen calibration? It was working perfectly until then...
