    System Refresh can be performed by System Export/Import method.. but can be also performed by few other methods like backup restore.

    System Export/Import method can also be used for OS/DB Migration, hardware change etc.

    Further to what described by ashish vikas :

    System Refresh is meant to use the existing data of one system to be swapped with another system which is often referred as Quality refresh too because this approach is in general adopted to refresh the data of a Quality system in landscape with that of the Production system, i.e. to make the quality system data same as production for better test purpose.
