Yes pretty sure you can copy and paste or move it in windows explorer.

If you need to use it just right click the file and select "merge"

IMO...the smarter thing to do (rather than backing up the registry) would be to backup your entire system, using a program like Acronis True Image, Symantec Ghost, etc.

I've had computers since 1996 now and I've never once had something in the registry go wrong where restoring it would fix anything. But I have had frequent occasion to use backups which I systematically make of everything on my system.

Just my two cents :thumbsup:.
