I have my own User on D:\Users\Kent. When I run Registry Backup from that account, it backs up all the other Users except mine. The rest are located on C:\Users. I have tried running backup from another account, in safe mode, and in normal mode. The result is always the same. My own current user registry files are never backed up.
If I use the default Windows Registry Editor and do an Export. The entire registry is exported in seconds, including my keys.
I have a simple junction point C:\Users\Kent => D:\Users\Kent. I have used this setup for at least 5 years never had a problem with any other program.
The scary part is I felt assured knowing my registry was being backed up. Now I realize its never been backed up.
Windows 7 Pro SP1.

I believe it tends to default to C: but I use Macrium Reflect Free to create regular system images but Win 7 has its own Create a system image which you can use.

The advantage of Macrium though is that the latest image doesn't overwrite the previous one as the Windows one does.
