Can ERUNT replace System Restore?

My brother said system restore is unnecessary when you have ERUNT and I can just disable it to save some resource. Is that really right?

Your brother is wrong. System restore backs up the registry, too. Erunt does not
Don't tamper with a great OS.

Hmmm, I thought it was Erunt ONLY backs up the registry? I agree though. Erunt is NOT a replacement for System Restore. I run both. A Guy

Erunt

NTREGOPT is also good.

Actually, ERUNT backs up your registry only. System Restore backs up your registry and a few other things.

However...

If you already back up all of your files via a different method and are solely looking for a registry backup method, ERUNT may be able to replace system restore.

Personally, I have a system image which is a carbon copy of my hard drive in it's infantile state. It has all of the basic information contained on it. I also have a backup of all my passwords in a password management database. I have backups of all my media files on secondary external hard drives.

Basically, you need to choose what type of backup you're looking for and then you can choose whether you want ERUNT, System Restore, or a a complete system imaging tool.
