What does terraform refresh really do?

While using terraform to deploy a fairly large infrastructure in AWS, our remote tfstate got corrupted and was deleted.

From the documentation, I gather that terraform refresh should query AWS to get the real state of the infrastructure and update the tfstate accordigly, but that does not happen: my tfstate is untouched and plan + apply give a lot of Already existing errors.
