I have a HP stream laptop that I would like to factory reset so that I can give it to my mum when I go to uni, but it doesn't have enough storage to download the 8GB reset thing (as in physically doesn't have the space, not due to my files). Would anyone know of a way to factory reset my laptop in a different way. Thanks in advance for all of the help.
