What is re-testing?

Re-testing is executing a previously failed test against new software to check if the problem is resolved. After a defect has been fixed, re-testing is performed to check the scenario under the same environmental conditions.

During Re-testing, testers look for granular details at the changed area of functionality, whereas regression testing covers all the main functions to ensure that no functionalities are broken due to this change.
