Backup your registry with a single click
What is it?
Registry Saver makes backups of your Windows registry, and stores them in uniquely named directories. It can also shut down your PC or put it to sleep mode afterwards.
How do I use it?
RegSaver is operated by command line parameters. Just extract the downloaded archive file and create a shortcut to RegSaver.exe on your Desktop or Toolbar. Then, right-click on the shortcut, select "Properties...", and add the command line parameters in the "Target" box.
To launch RegSaver, just click the newly created shortcut.
Ok, what are the command line parameters, then?
Glad you asked. Syntax is:
Why should I need registry backups?
Because having a corrupt registry means reinstalling the operating system and all applications in most cases, especially under Windows 2000. Registry corruption can be caused by system crashes, turning of the computer without proper shutdown, disk drive failure, and many other things.
On some systems, Windows 2000 doesn't properly flush the disk write cache before powering down the system, which tends to regulary corrupt your registry. This is what Registry Saver was originally written for.
Where can I get it?
You can download Registry Saver together with some other cool freeware from the downloads page.
