It will completely delete all of your apps and recordings on Sky Q.
It's possible to restore your Buy & Keep purchases on the Sky.com/restore.

One more tip…
Every Sky Q touch remote has a built-in locator mechanism.
It means you’ll never lose it again…unless you’ve accidentally left it miles from your home.
But if you’ve dropped it down the back of the sofa or accidentally put it in the kitchen bin, you’ll be able to uncover it.
The remote has a built-in speaker that can beep if you’ve lost it.
First make sure your house is quiet, so you can hear the locator beep.
Then press the Q button on the front of your Sky Q box.
After a few seconds, your paired Sky Q Touch / Sky Q remote with Voice Control will beep.
This beeping will only last for 30 seconds, so if you don’t find it in that time, you’ll need to restart the process.

It’s also possible that the Sky Q remote is no longer in the building, and can’t be reached by the Sky Q box.
