"Fast, Efficient, Registry Backup"
Version: ERUNT 1.1i
ERUNT v1.1j, 10/20/2005, can be configured to backup different or all parts of the Registry. Can be configured to backup to folder names with date and/or time in them. Very customizable. Does not require a Windows install. Extremely fast, full Registry backup takes 2.5 seconds.
ERUNT v1.1j, 10/20/2005, is 6.5 years old. Came out 4 years before Win7 was released. Some users have reported NTREGOPT may cause problems with Windows 7 and is not recommended. AUTOBACK launched from the StartUp folder may not work correctly in Win7.
ERUNT v1.1j, 10/20/2005: Just unzipped it, configured it, and ran it in Win7-64 Pro. For safety, I decided not to use the install file, just the ZIP'd file. Because I have been using computers since the Apple II+ days, before MS-DOS was even written, configuration was straightforward, simple, and easy. For these small but essential utilities, I prefer not using an installer anyway. The default folder for AUTOBACKing the Registry is:
When AUTOBACK is launched in the StartUp folder, this will not work in Win7. The explanation is in ERUNT_Tweaks_Win7.txt. I decided to just use an AUTOBACK Desktop icon with a CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+A shortcut key. This way I can do a quick backup anytime I want. The ERUNT README.TXT file states the backup will take "some time." I found this humorous because on my i7, SATA system, it took 2.5 seconds. The Win7 Registry is quite bloaty at 168 MB's.
If you have a second drive or partition, I highly recommend you do NOT create your backups on the C: partition. If you get a BSOD, you can get file corruption. Save your backups on a different partition. Because another reviewer complained how long it took to create the command line, here is what I decided to place on the shortcut:
Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\ERUNT\AUTOBACK.EXE" D:\ERDNT\#DATE#-#TIME# sysreg curuser otherusers /noconfirmdelete /days:14
Start in: "C:\Program Files (x86)\ERUNT"
Shortcut key: CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+A
You must create and place the above shortcut on your DeskTop for the Shortcut key combination to work correctly. This will give you 14 backups. To avoid any conflicts should you do multiple backups on the same day, I have added the time to the folder name.
Be aware, ERUNT v1.1j was written in 2005, 4 years BEFORE Win7 was released. Therefore, I do not recommend you use the included NTREGOPT utility. Other reviewers have complained they've had problems with NTREGOPT.
The restore utility is called ERDNT. Since I just started using ERUNT, I have not yet had cause to use ERDNT. Hopefully, I won't but it's good to know I have a backed up Registry.
