Windows 7: Registry Backup in WIN 7

Registry Backup in WIN 7

I have been using WIN 7 for some time now and , until lately , had no reason to backup the Registry. However due to a problem I had with MS Office , it became advisable to take the precaution of creating a Registry Backup before proceeding with some changes there.

It seems the Registry Backup procedure described in these Forums is more involved than it was in XP if I have interpreted the instructions correctly.

Can you tell me whether such a Backup can be done by simply going into Regedit and , assuming a full Registry Backup id desired, , right clicking on the "Computer" icon there and selecting "EXPORT" and then choosing a name for the resulting file and a destination to save it ?

Hello Thenoo,

The best way to create a backup of the complete registry would be to create a restore point. This way you could easily do a system restore if needed to restore the complete registry and system back to how it was when the selected restore point was created.
