Windows 7: ERUNT over Home Network setup

ERUNT over Home Network setup

Windows 7 Home Edition - 64bit.
I want to use the Task Scheduler for an automatic monthly backup of the registry. I am trying to run ERUNT over a Home Network to backup the Registry of computer "B" onto computer "A". The ERUNT works fine on a manual basis when I can enter the Home Network path, but it does not allow the path option when setting up the Task Scheduler. I was thinking of creating an ERUNT.ini but donít know if it would work or if the ERUNT/Autoback.exe would find the ini. Any thoughts or help is appreciated.

Have you read the docs for erunt? If you read you will see it doesn't support anything after XP and second it doesn't back up all the reg so it can't be used to recover a system

OK, - Suggestions ??

All the readings I found indicated that ERUNT did do all the registry BUs including the security hives. I ran it manually and it seemed to execute fine, but I wonít know until it is to late. Now I guess I learned something new - thanks. Any recommendations/apps for what I am trying to do? The storing on a different computer on the Home network seems to be the major factor. Thanx for any suggestions.

Supported operating systems --------------------------- - Windows NT 3.51 - Windows NT 4.0 - Windows 2000 - Windows 2003 - Windows XP - most likely, all future Windows versions based on the NT kernel Additionally supported by the ERDNT restore program: - MS-DOS - Windows 95 - Windows 98 - Windows Me

I dont see the point of what you are doing you canuse reg export or in regedit you can connect to remote pc and export it.but the real answer is to create system images on a remote pc then you have everything the chances of the reg going down are small with a full image you have everything

Erunt

Thatís a thought, I have Acronis and maybe cloning it can save it across the Home network. Thanks for the idea.

ERUNT works just fine in 7 but with a proviso:

ERUNT and NTREGOPT in their current versions 1.1j are still compatible with Windows 7, but as in Vista, they will only work correctly if you turn off User Account Control in Windows' Control Panel (move the slider to the lowest position).

I turned UAC off almost from 7's release and relied on my common sense and my AV instead and over numerous machines in the ensuing years it's never once been any problem whatsoever.

Acronis can image to and recover from a network but frankly you'd be better off creating an image to a USB stick or other external drive then simply copying it to the other computer.

On single drive machines like laptops I partition the drive and create images there and on desktops I fit a second drive for the purpose.

I also copy all images to an independent USB HD so even a total HD failure can be quickly recovered from.

Imaging is a great backup strategy and one I've been practicing it since Win 95 (with Ghost then) however I totally get EPRUNT because a full image restore is not necessarily the optimal fix for a simple reg problem which is why I've been using that too and from about the same time.

I am trying to use task manager to do automatic monthly registry backups. My current direction is using reg.exe/Save and reg.exe/Restore or Load on opposite machines (A to B, and B to A over a Home network) similar to your suggestion. Imaging on an automatic schedule seems a little over kill for the problem, but maybe in the future if nothing else works. So the project is still in work.

Thanx for the comment and feedback.

Once you have a full Acronis backup you can freely schedule incremental or differential backups which will normally be quite small, a few hundred kb perhaps, so more practical over a network.

I'm looking at that too. I'll get something to work.
