Asks About Backing Up The Windows XP Registry
I have Windows XP Home. How easy is it to back up the registry and how do I
do it. Is there a program to use? Can I do it myself? Thanks, Sally
You can "do it yourself" by following the steps we've indicated on our
Registry Backup Tutorial. Please make
sure that you only backup your registry when your computer is functioning
normally. Backing up your registry when your computer is running poorly or
about to stop running all together only backs up the very things that are
causing your computer to run poorly. Keep a good backup of your registry
handy and only use it if it's absolutely necessary. A good backup of your
registry can save you a lot of time and trouble should you experience
catastrophic problems in the future. Merging a backup copy of registry is
serious issue and shouldn't be used as a band-aid for minor problems. The
method we describe creates a "REG" file. This is the most well known file
format used for backing up the registry. The Registration File can be used
in two ways. As a text file it can be read and edited using Notepad outside
of Registry Editor. Once the changes have been made and saved, right
clicking the file and using the [Merge] command adds the changed file back
into the registry. If you make additions to the registry using regedit and
then merge the previously saved Registration File, anything that you've
added via REGEDIT will not be removed, but changes you make to data using
regedit that previously existed in the saved Registration File will be
overwritten when it is merged. Using our
simple tutorial should allow you to backup
your registry without using any other programs.
