    Is it necessary to backup the registry?


    When I used Windows 7, I used a program called RegBak to backup the registry. You could even restore the registry with it if the system didn't boot.

    I also found this article, How to restore Registry from its secret backup on Windows 10, but my "secret backup" is empty.

    I thought I would ask if backing up the registry is even necessary. I looked and can't find any Tenforums tutorials on backing up the registry. Maybe it isn't necessary because we have system restore points.

    I look forward to your advice. I just installed Windows 10 last week for the first time.

    :)

  2. Whether It Is Necessary to Clean System Registry

    It is said in some source that the system can slow down after many programs have been installed and used over time. Is it necessary to clean the system registry, as creators of registry cleaning programs suggest?

    Registry Backup - Question

    Registry Backup

    I am reading a book, Windows 10 Anniversary Update. It makes these two statements.

    • File History also keeps a copy of your Registry.
    • Every time you start your computer, it makes a backup copy of that Registry.
    Where and how do I find these copies?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    registry fix

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the description, I understand that you are facing some issues using Windows 10.

    I would like to know some information.


    • What registry fix are you trying to run?

    • What is the exact issue that you are facing?

    • Have you taken a backup of all your data?
    I would suggest you to take a backup of all your data before doing any changes in the registry keys. If you do any incorrect changes to the registry you won’t be able to boot the computer.

    Disclaimer: This section, method, or task contains steps that tells you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps
    carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in
    the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    322756 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/ )

    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows.



    Please let us know the information in brief. We will be glad to assist you further.
