Backup software with registry key backup
« on: October 30, 2006, 07:06:07 PM »
I am looking for a program which allows backup of files/folders like all backup apps do, but includes a way to backup individual registry keys or trees. Does anyone know of any apps that do this?

So far, I have had suggested Handy Backup and Genie-soft backup (not sure if genie does this, gonna check it out).

Any recommendations are welcome. Thanks!

You can also try http://www.larsheder...e.t-online.de/erunt/ for Registry Backup and then a regular file backup software like backup4all.

Just FWIW... I used a self-made Windows script, now an AHK script, to backup selected registry keys daily (via scheduler) in monthly archives using (Win)RAR. So, whenever I have to restore my system drive from an image, I don't lose settings from my used apps.

To use...
1. Install Autohotkey
2. Edit the script and change the path to rar.exe (or Winrar.exe)
3. Edit list.txt. Syntax --> {name of file}:{registry key}  (Samples included)
