RegSnap is designed to help users in viewing the content of their registry file. The tool can also be used to make backups.
A good method of scanning the collection of Windows keys
Essentially, the application has one core function: to scan the registry and generate a snapshot. This is very useful, both for archiving purposes, but also for keeping track of the changes made.
Early warnings can prevent total breakdowns and this resource is well-equipped to signal such cases! The snapshot is essentially a mirror-image of the collection of keys stored in the Windows module.
One of the great features of this program is that it can import or export REG documents. This high degree of flexibility means both that backups can be made and that analyses are not limited to the host computer.
Geared towards detecting registry inconsistencies
The built-in “Compare” function is very powerful, because it allows users to highlight the differences between two previously-conducted analyses. The tool is incredibly thorough and will detect mismatches down to individual binary sequences!
This high amount of attention to detail can be disconcerting; therefore, a very useful “Summary” heading is available. Making quick-checks is also facilitated by the fact that the resource automatically groups together relevant results (e.g. modified, deleted or new keys).
Reports are generated in HTML format and can be saved to disk. Loading them at a later time is also possible by navigating to the “Tools” menu.
Recommended for quick and thorough scans
All in all, RegSnap is a very handy tool for anyone in the business of tracking changes made to the Windows registry. The ability to export analyses to REG format is great, and the “Compare” function is good at signaling potential problems.
