Windows 7: Regdefrag on 7

Regdefrag on 7

Auslogics Regdefrag works on 7048 x64.

Surprised how little defragging was needed - only 3% fragmented according to the app.

Tried it with separate System and Boot partitions and with the Boot partition also set as System .

No problem with either.

I used the earlier free version v5.0.17.435.

Sadly, it is no longer free - trial version available.

Also tried with the free Glary regdefrag and Quicksys regdefrag - neither work with 7, though both work well with Vista.

And by "does not work" means you best know how to recover your registry, because you will not be able to boot into windows 7 if you try one of those.

My advise to anyone with windows 7 is stear clear of registry cleaners/defraggers. The only one I trust right now is ccleaner.

Hi Yup Yup,

Sounds like you tried them too.

Auslogics works fine - have used it several times now.

I used it on my XP and Vista Ultimate ... it worked fine for a number of months, then it didn't! I ended up re-installing both OS's

Be oh so very careful using these types of applications.

Hi,

Everyone's system is different - any app. may behave unpredictably.

Someone posted today they had major problems with Paragon Drive backup - never come across that before.

It just goes to show, always keep a recent backup image.

Yes i have had the pleasure of restoring my registry in windows 7 thanks to those programs, but at least they make backups.

Oh turns out i used an older version of Quicksys regdefrag, the latest version of their defrag and regcleaner state they support windows 7. I will have to put that statement to test later.

Hi Yup Yup,

I used Quicksys Regdefrag v2.3 - which I think is the new one.

Couldn't boot back in. Let me know how you get on with it.

Do you know of a way to restore the registry from the WinRe command line?

There is no one stop magic registry restore command that i know of, i just delete the registry files and replace them with the backups.

I'm just installing regdefrag 2.3 now, i'll let you know the results in a bit.

Ok finished and the results are that version 2.3 locks up on the analyze, saves me from doing the restore anyway.
