Erunt works on Windows 7 if run as administrator.

Erunt

Hi
There is a great video/tutorial on YouTube by Britec which shows the many workarounds necessary to schedule backups with ERUNT and Win 7 x64.
I am only an average user and thoroughly did my homework before using ERUNT.
One needs to work with a scheduler, tic a few boxes like running with highest priveleges etc.
You may be right but my research shows more needs to be done than running as administartor.
Perhaps right clicking to run as admin may allow a one time backup I do not know but to schedule backups requires more I think.
I am going to see if I can find that video. http://youtu.be/h26tfWJSvPg
I hope that works.

I NEVER backup my registry as I don't ever access it.

Just a FYI, but when you create a restore point in Windows, it includes a backup of your registry. This allows you to be able to do a system restore to use that restore point to also restore the registry as it was at the time and date the restore point was created.

restore point

Thank you for that.
At times, restore points depend upon each other to work so can be unreliable. This new program I am reading about is not dependent upon Windows per se and is a safer backup.
If this forum allows it and if you are interested I can direct you to it.
It is the new ERUNT picking up where XP left off.

Restore points do not depend on each other in Windows 7.

Personally, I prefer to create and image of my operating system for backup.
I like Acronis True Image for this.

As I understand it, it is possible for system restore not to function because of the relationship among the restore points.
I too use Acronis and it has never failed me.

Hello Seven,

Nope. Restore points are not incremental and are independent from each other and do not rely on any other one. In fact, you can easily delete specific restore points at will without affecting other restore points.

The main thing you have to worry about restore points is how much maximum disk space usage is set for them. As space runs out, older restore points are deleted automatically to make room for a new restore point being created.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
