ERUNT to restore using the command prompt

Good morning everyone

Excuse me but my language is not English, is Portuguese.

Dell Inspiron N 4050 - Windows 7 - 64 - SP1 - Home basic

Could anyone tell how to restore the registry through existing backup with ERUNT, using the command prompt?

Similarly, other software such as Z-VSScopy, RegBak?

grateful

Hi

By default, Windows will keep a backup copy of the most recent Registry hive files on the folder "Windows\System32\Config\Regback" folder. To restore the hives from that folder, please follow instruction from the below guide.

Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery


How to use "Regback" tool : RegBak, Registry Backup And Restore Tool by Britec - YouTube

How to use "Tweaking.com Registry Backup" tool : Tweaking.com - Registry Backup Online Help & FAQ - Tweaking.com - Registry Backup Videos


ERUNT is outdated and may not wok properly with 7 and 8. I would recommend using one of the above programs instead.


Iwould also recommend creating a system image backup with "Macrium" and keep it on an external disk - Image your system with free Macrium

That's what I was looking for, Britec video was enlightening .. .tested here .. and it worked. .

Thank you so much!

Seizing the opportunity:

Why, sometimes restoring the system (registry) via backup, such as the Tweaking, not all software that were working at the time of return to work after backup restoration?

That is because a Registry backup will only restore Registry hive files and not any of system files or programs. If a program's exe file or some DLL files are corrupted and it stopped working, obviously a Registry restore won't fix it. On the other hand "System restore" will restore not only Registry but also system and program files to the date we choose. Yes, "System Restore" is not perfect and buggy but it may came handy in some situations. I have seen people recommending to turn off "System Restore" but i will never advise to do that. It saved me a number of times when everything other failed.


Once again, i would recommend creating an image of your "C" drive using "Macrium" and save it on an external disk. If you can't afford to buy one, save the image to a second partition ( D or E ). Make sure to update this image periodically ( say on every 15 days ). This will provide you protection from any kind of software issues and all software at the time of backup will work after restore.

My initial question is from someone who does not have much "intimacy" with DOS (command prompt) ... but I'm trying to learn. . . Tweaking The video was already in my favorites for some time.

Now I see that it was very simple to access Windows OS when it breaks and that was my initial goal in this post, ie, an alternative to other options beyond image, system restore. . .

Really, nothing better than the system image. For some years I have been using system images. Initially through Easeus Todo Backup and lately Macrium. And every time it was necessary to use them, everything worked fine.

Speaking promp command (DOS) if you have any indication of good tutorials. . .

I appreciate your attention and availability to assist me in this post, because I did the same question up on another reputable forum and my question was there for over a week unanswered. . .

I made some recoveries Windows OS on some opportunities through the command prompt (DOS): Bootrec, fixmbr. . .

Put your information in my favorites. . . for further reading. . . and, certainly, and such information is of great importance to me.

Once again, thank you for your attention, the availability of such information transfer.

Cheers
