Registry files not on system (C) drive not getting backed up
« on: September 21, 2015, 04:09:23 PM »
Hi there. SUPER utilities, thank you so much!

Bought Windows Repair Pro this morning and tried backing up my registry, and promptly ran into an issue: Windows (7 Home Premium 64-bit) system is installed on a smallish SSD, with my user profile stuff on a regular old platter drive. This appears to be a problem for the backup, as it backs up all the registry files it finds on C, but my working registry files on D are not getting backed up. Any workaround for this?

Are there any errors in the registry backup log? If you go to the backup folder you will find the logs under each backup.

I looked at the logs at the time and there were no errors, they looked like the logs on the other computers in my house where I had set up similar backups that were completing successfully. It just looked like the software did not check other mapped drives on that machine for user registries.

I have since re-installed Windows on that machine due to an intractible networking issue, and the current configuration is with the user data/registry on the system drive, so that specific backup issue is no more.

Sorry I can't re-create the problem for you!

Don't know whether to mark the topic "solved", since I don't know if it is...
