This video shows you how to schedule registry backups using SMARegisTry Backup and Windows' Task Scheduler. Read more about SMARegisTry Backup in the description.
SMARegisTry Backup is the first program of its kind to offer a viable, stable, and time saving approach to backing up selective registry keys within Windows environments. SMARegisTry Backup is completely free and is open source software. SMARegisTry Backup allows you to create, load, and save lists of registry keys you'd like to backup. SMARegisTry Backup then ties into the regedit.exe API and exports the keys you've selected automatically to a directory of your choice. SMARegisTry Backup can also restore registry keys one at a time or all at once by scanning a directory for all .reg files and importing them all at once into the Windows registry. There are several registry backup programs out there, but they do not allow you selectively pick your keys!
Written in C#, the .NET Framework 2.0 or higher is needed to run this program.
I wrote this program because I often have to reformat my computers due to stability issues with my operating system. These problems naturally occur after years of use thanks to clutter and inefficient handling of resources. I hate having to browse through the registry editor and manually select the keys I will need to import back into my registry once my new installation of Windows has been installed. It is essential to backup certain keys, as some programs, such as games, will not work without their registry entries when your operating system is reinstalled. SMARegisTry Backup simplifies the process and allows you to import and export registry keys on the fly and save lists of keys for future backup.
