Regbak is a freeware portable tool that lets you backup and restore the Windows Registry in a few seconds. A few days back we had blogged about ERUNTgui. Regback is another easy-to-use registry backup software for Windows 8 | 7.
The Registry, the central hierarchical database used in the Microsoft Windows, is used to store information necessary to configure the PC for one or more users, applications and hardware devices.
The Registry contains information that Windows continually references during operations such as setting profiles for each user, details about the applications installed on your computer and the types of documents that an application can create, what all hardware exists in the system, the ports that are being used, etc.
Select the ‘Registry Hives’ to backup. By default, the ‘System’ and ‘Current User’ hives are selected. You can instruct the program to backup the rest of the hives also by enabling the ‘Other Available Hives’ option.
After selecting the backup folder location and the hive(s) to backup, click ‘Next’. This will take you to a confirmation page. Click ‘Start’ to begin the backup process. Clicking ‘Show Progress’ will show you the backup operation progress: which file is being backup-ed.
After successfully saving the Registry files, click ‘Cancel’ button to close the program. Also, you can go to the folder where the backup was made by clicking the path shown.
If at any time you feel the need to restore the backed up registry files, you can select the Restore option.
