Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb ripristinare, which means to restore or to refresh when talking about computers and electronic devices. You’ll also see this verb used when a train or metro line stops working and, after an hour or two or more, the service is restored.

See the verb used below:

Ieri un virus mi ha mandato in tilt il computer. Stamattina ho dovuto portarlo dal tecnico, il quale fortunatamente me lo ha ripristinato in meno di un’ora.

Yesterday, a virus broke my computer. This morning I had to bring it to the technician who luckily restored it for me in less than an hour.
