Few questions about Registry Backup
« on: July 29, 2012, 02:09:08 PM »
Hi,

Saw on MajorGeeks your new software and would like to install it after I have a few questions answered.

1.  Scheduling:  I want to use your Registry Backup only on a manual basis.

Do I have to untick the boxes for the shown automatic scheduling feature? 
Do I have to take out the 30 day shown scheduled backups as well?   
Do I just have to click on Backup Now to do a manual backup?
 
2.  Can I delete manually all old backups in Reg\Backup?
3.  If necessary, can I create additional manual registry backups on the same day?

Win 7 - 64 bit and I am a Noob.  Oh and I have currently ERUNTgui on my PC.

TIA

PS:  Looks like a great software when looking at the video.

Scheduling isnt enabled by default. You have to click on create schedule to set it. And then it simply sets it in the Windows Task scheduler.

To run the program manually you simply just open it and hit backup now :-)

You sure can :-)

You can create as many as you like. The program records the date and time in the folder name. This allows you to have as many backups as you want int he same day.

Big fan of Erunt myself, I made my version because I wanted more  :wink:

Thank you Shane for all the info provided.  Just made a manual registry backup with your Registry Backup and I find it awesome!! 

I remember ERUNT being over 120 MB yet RegBackup is about 83 MB?  No clue why it's less MB as I used RegBackup at default settings.

Not sure on that one. By default my program uses the volume shadow copy service, which lets me grab all the registry files without loading them, reading them and writing them to a file like erunt does.

However if VSS fails my program will do the API backup just like erunt :wink:

Thanks for getting back to me Shane.   :smiley:

Just a thought.  I just remembered doing all ERUNTgui backups by having ticked the *all users* box.  Perhaps that could be the reason for the discrepancy in MBs between the 2 software since I don't see any option for that in your Registry Backup?   Is that plausible?  :thinking:   

Too late to run ERUNTgui now for me to compare it by doing the default style (without the *all users*) since I deleted it prior to installing the Registry Backup and won't reinstall it anymore.

My program can actually backup all profiles on the system. Erunt could only backup loaded profiles :wink:

When you run my program you see them all in the list.

I am not sure why there was a size difference. If you are able you can run erunt from my windows repair tool (I havent replaced erunt yet in it with my new one, going to soon) and have it do a backup then compare the files sizes :-)

Thanks Shane,

Too bad that I also deleted the existing ERDNT files that were created by ERUNTgui when I deleted its software.  I checked out the Windows Repair on your website and i's video but don't see any reference to the ability to run erunt in Windows Repair (All In One)  I trust that your Registry Backup will do it's job.  It was just curiosity about the size difference, that's all, so I'll leave it at that.   :smiley:

PS:  Yes, I saw all the profiles listed in the list of RegBack.
