Windows 7: Copy Files From One Drive to Another

I managed to get it working a different way, not as an image. Everything is copied over except for SteamApps by using: XXCOPY, A Versatile File Management Utility --- Boldly Extended Xcopy

All that is left for me to do before I reinstall my computer is to be able to create a browsable registry backup if that is possible. Some games save to the registry but it will take forever going through my registry and finding every single place where a games saves to it. So the easiest way I can think of is just to create a backup of the entire registry but in a way that I'm able to browse the backup and restore certain parts of it when needed. Is this possible to do?

If not possible, is there a way I can use what I find when I open it with notepad++ to add in what I need to the registry manually?

Did you try to use the windows back-up and restore utility. It will give you an option to choose which folders you want to backup, also you may backup the user account if required

Too late for that. I already had reinstalled windows. I already got files copied over using xxcopy so I'm good now.
