There often arises a need to figure out what may have changed on a system, either due to a specific issue or even to compare the difference between two systems.
Windows System State Analyzer tool is designed to help create snapshots of logical drives, registry, drivers and services of a computer.
You first create a baseline snapshot that contains all the desire options or selected options and then after creating another snapshot at a later point of time, you can compare the two and see the changes which have occurred in your system.
Analyzer was predominantly developed for the Windows Server 2008 Logo program, though we find users benefit from it in other scenarios.
The tool supports both Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 Operating systems.
