Portable Registry Backuper
There are many situations in which the computer might crash and the reasons behind many system errors reside in a faulty registry. In order to avoid such issues, it is always a good idea to keep a backup of this sensitive area of the system.
Besides the manual method of exporting the keys via the Registry Editor which is built-in any Windows OS, there is the often quicker alternative of employing an external tool like Portable Registry Backuper.
Create backups from a simple front-end
Since installation is not required for this application, you will be able to start the backup process as soon as the package is uncompressed. The main window holds all the commands for saving the registry hives or restoring data, depending on the type of task you want to carry out.
Portable Registry Backuper displays a list with all the registry hives available on the PC, as well as the size (in kilobytes) for each entry on the list.
Pick the desired operation and backup mode then start the job
This software solution can play two roles, so you are able to save the registry as a WIM (Windows Imaging File Format) file, but it is equally easy to restore it. A reboot will be required when recovering the registry, so in a matter of minutes everything should be back in place, as it was in the moment when the backup was created.
To make it easier for you to decide which kind of backup to perform, Portable Registry Backuper offers two methods of compressing the data, namely a normal mode, where the task is completed immediately and there's also the full backup, which will take longer to complete.
A simple tool for creating registry backups with ease
To conclude, this app seems best suited for less experienced users, given the lack of advanced functions and configurations. Nonetheless, especially since it is a portable utility, anyone can benefit from it if they are on the lookout for a fast means of backing up the system registry.
