Sometimes it will offer Non Destructive or Factory restore. Non destructive will do actually what you are describing.

FYI: You will need to do all the updates for the OS and Drivers to make sure everything is up to date.
Please let me know when it is done if everything is working correctly and all your data has been erased as you wanted.
