Windows Registry Recovery
Windows Registry Recovery is a tiny and portable application that allows users to read files which include Windows Registry hives, as well as important data on configuration and Windows installation settings.
Since there is no setup pack available, you can drop the executable file anywhere on the hard disk and click it to run.
It is also possible to save it to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine with minimum effort.
What’s more, the Windows Registry does not get new entries, and files are not kept on the hard disk after removing the utility.
The interface is made from a regular window with a plain and simple layout, where you can open files using the file browser only, since drag-and-drop support is not featured.
Windows Registry Recovery reveals information on the file type, last date of modification, hive name, checkum, number of keys and HBINs, loading time, together with CRC32, MD5 and SHA1 signatures.
In addition, you can enter a key prefix or root key for exporting data, explore security records and find out various details (e.g. usage counter, record size, owner and group SID), get Windows installation details (e.g. installed software, hot fixes), view hardware information, and more.
We have noticed a minimal CPU and RAM consumption during the utility’s runtime. It has a good reaction speed and works well, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity, Windows Registry Recovery should satisfy all users.
