C:\Windows\System32\config
« on: May 09, 2012, 11:25:21 AM »
Hhello
I was reading an article that said this subject exists in Win 7 .
I am not a tech but the people writing the article seemed to know what they are doing and expressed some comcern about this insertion by MS.
Is this something to be concernd about or is it just an integral part of the os?
Thank you
Peter

C:\Windows\System32\config is where Windows keeps the registry files :wink:

It seems as though their lack of information led them, then me to unnecessary inquiries.
They felt they had backups there.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
