Yes. It removes absolutely everything on disk.

If youre going to format - make sure you have backed up all your files on to a memory stick or something like that and just format. Be aware that everything on the disk will go after formatting

A-Nonymous is absolutely right, but are you sure you mean Windows Sytem Restore files, or are you confusing any Compter recovery files that may be on a hidden partition to restore your computer to factory settings?
