Well I've never needed to back them up but I do have software installed that checks for invalid paths. I have noticed that it does have a backup / restore option.

Example of backup:

Code:
BACKUP_TYPE_ENVMANAGER
USER
TEMP
V:\AppData\Local\Temp 
TMP
V:\AppData\Local\Temp 
PATH
;C:\Program Files (x86)\Icecream Screen Recorder\bin\gstreamer\x86\bin 
BACKUP_TYPE_ENVMANAGER
SYSTEM
ComSpec
C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe 
devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices
1 
FP_NO_HOST_CHECK
NO 
NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS
2 
OS
Windows_NT 
Path
C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\system32\Wbem;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\AGL;C:\Program Files\Prio;C:\Program Files (x86)\Icecream Screen Recorder\bin\gstreamer\x86\bin;C:\Program Files\EmEditor 
PATHEXT

You can get the software needed from here:

Path Manager

Path-Manager download | SourceForge.net

Note: Don't make any changes unless you know what you are doing - however backup and restore is fine to use.

Path Manager uses text files - not a registry backup.

Note   Note
To keep backup, user can export the environment information. Just user Export button for that purpose which ask for a folder where this information will be saved. Two text files will be made, one for system variables and one for user variables. As for requirements the user can then import these files back to memory. However, even after import the changes still need to be committed.


If I make any changes they take effect here:

hkey_local_machine\system\CurrentControlSet\control\session manager\environment\

But I am the only user on my machine!
