Ok, I understand the problem. The first option might be the most radical as it
can reset everything to factory settings (if things only changed recently and
there is only one backup available).

I would suggest to remove the wording that "the options get more radical from
top down" [1] which is simply not true and it's hard to order them so that this
is true in all cases.

Would that be an improvement?
