I am trying to learn the easiest and safest way to backup and restore windows-10 registry. I see many tutorials, but am wondering about such tools as ERUNTgui. Regback and Eruntgui : Backup. Would love some advice....Thanks...Jim

The easiest and safest way to do this is to set a System Restore point.

Beyond that, you can use free tools to back it up.  I used to use ERUNT, but haven't tried it in years.

Hi,

 

ERUNT wasn't updated to support Windows 7 and higher it works but the backup will not include all the registry components and some time it fails throwing some error.

 

A better tool is Tweaking.com - Registry Backup this one is updated frequently.

System restore was not real reliable when it first came out (but it's always done good registry backups).

It made great strides with each release since XP - to the point where it was reliable in W7 and later versions

I still retained my aversion to it, but with W10 I've begun to use it regularly at work - I make a restore point as the last thing that I do to a system before completing the service on that system.

The Tweaking.com All in one repair does an exelent registry backup as mentioned,you can also use the Registry itsel to backup.

 

Open Regedit ( Run Regedit.exe)

Go to the top left file menu and just click on "Export" and it,ll back up the registry for you.

Using an export like that isn't impossible to restore the registry just one example there are no information about the Registry permissions!

 

The export only works in very simple situations.

Oh right i didnt actually know that,although i assumed somehow you got a less sophisticated backup than with Erunt,which i used to use.Using the Win all in one repair backup currently.Havnt actually managed to fudge the registry since xp but theirs plenty of time:).Thanks for the info.

You should probably have started a new topic for that,but anyway,you should probably backup both partitions seperatly,depending on what kind of backup you were going to do.In theory you could probably make a system image of the whole thing but thats probably not advisable,hopefully someone more knowlegable

will reply.

In that case,yes of course,both are independent systems with their own registry sructure,so you would boot into Win 8.1.back that up then boot into 10 and back that up...presumably you have the Win repair program on both installs?
