Registry Tool Restore features

Note: - The Restore command does *NOT* replace your active Windows Registry like other registry software. It is a powerful and flexible command with options that alter the target scope of the command. It may also be used to edit loaded Dat/Hive Binary files.

The Restore command can be used to edit any loaded Dat/Hive Binary file, even if the Registry Tool Database file was not produced from the Dat/Hive Binary file. You can utilize this technique to repair registry Dat/Hive Binary files, add keys and values from the Registry Tool Database into the binary file, or build new Dat/Hive Binary files.

Far more common than wanting to totally restore a registry is the desire to change some entries back to their original state; yet leave new keys and values alone. With Registry Tool this wish is now a reality! The Registry Tool Restore feature guarantees that you have the speed and flexibility to overcome Windows registry problems or perform a Windows registry recovery. Any Registry Tool Database may be restored at any time, regardless of its creation date. You can also perform custom restores by creating a Registry Tool Database from a partial reg file or editing a Registry Tool Database and selecting the Complete Restore option.

Registry Tool's Restore feature is a unique two step process giving you maximum flexibility.

Restore Phase - You select from the two available editing targets, the active Windows Registry or a loaded Dat/Hive Binary file, and the Restore command edits existing keys and values to match those in the Registry Tool Database. The Restore commands operates only against those Registry sections you select and according to the Scope setting. Keys and values contained in the editing target but *not* the Registry Tool Database file, are *not edited*.

Post-Restore Comparison Phase - Compares the sections of the Registry Tool Database you selected to restore to the same sections in the active Windows registry. The Post-Restore Comparison displays keys and values that are in the Windows registry and NOT the Registry Tool Database. You can then select which Windows registry settings you want to keep, all, some, or none and select which you want to delete.

This two step process gives you the flexibility to totally replace the chosen sections of the Windows registry with the database, or leave all or some of the keys and values written since the Registry Tool Database was created intact. The flexibility of this unique two step process enables you to, for example, modify network, file association, or hardware registry settings back to their original settings after a software install. You still have the new settings created by the install, but you can recover registry settings in other sections of the registry.

Reformatted your hard drive and now you want ONLY the software and user settings back? No problem. Ever changed motherboards and had Windows go haywire detecting new hardware, lock up, and you were forced to reformat and reinstall Windows? Registry Tool will restore a Registry Tool Database giving you your software settings back, yet leave those new hardware settings alone. Worried about upgrading hardware, and the upgrades cause registry malfunctions? Registry Tool's flexibility ensures you have the capability and techniques to overcome registry problems.
