Vista backup of registry files?

Recommended Posts

I am running Retrospect 7.6.2.101 SBS Premium. I have just begun backing up my first Vista workstation. I am receiving the following unexpectd errors that are particularly alarming:

 

...

File "C:\Users\Jim\NTUSER.DAT": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Users\Jim\ntuser.dat.LOG1": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Users\Jim\ntuser.dat.LOG2": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

...

File "C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\NTUSER.DAT": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\ntuser.dat.LOG1": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\ntuser.dat.LOG2": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\lastalive0.dat": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\lastalive1.dat": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\COMPONENTS": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\DEFAULT": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SAM": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SECURITY": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SOFTWARE": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

File "C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SYSTEM": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

 

This looks to me like the registry is not getting properly backed up. Is that correct?

Do you have the Retrospect Open File Backup option? Usually the sharing violation means that Retrospect cannot back up the file as it is in use. The Open File Backup allows Retrospect to back up these files in use.

No, I don't have the open file backup option. But if I have to pay an extra $900 to add that feature and do a proper disaster restore on my one Vista system, then I'll buy something else that does disaster recovery for a much lower cost.
