Backing Up and Restoring the Registry

In Category: Windows 98

You can backup the registry in one of two ways:

From the Command Prompt

1. Boot to Windows98's DOS
2. Go to the \WINDOWS\COMMAND directory
3. Run SCANREG /backup

While within Windows98

1. Run SCANREGW /autoscan

Backups are located in the \Windows\Sysbckup folder in the RB0xx.CAB file. Where xx is replaced by the different backups. The default setting is to keep 5 versions. See the next section, ScanReg.INI Settings, for how to change several of the default settings.

To restore a backup, you need to be in Windows98 DOS.

2. Run SCANREG /restore
3. From here you can select which one you want to restore
