Backing up and Restore Windows 7 Registry File by Native Methods

  • The built-in Backup and Restore service for Windows 7 does not contain a method of separate backup registry Windows 7 file. Instead, you must use regedit firstly to copy and save entire registry as a new .REG file.

    This file can be backed up and restored later as any other file and using regedit another time you can place the saved file instead of current registry.
  • Another way to “backup” registry file is to take a snapshot of the entire system image, including current registry file. This image, if it will be restored later, will automatically replace the registry file with its backed up copy.

    In this case, sometimes you will want to disable system restore Windows 7 registry, but this process can’t be controlled using native methods.
