mpf Posted April 1, 2003 Report Share Posted April 1, 2003 I'm trying to restore an XP client, with Windows Retrospect Client (v.6), from a Mac G4 running 10.2.4 and the Main Reprospect Backup Program, v. 5.0.236. After reinstalling a temp XP system to a separate directory on C (say, "WINNT") and installing the new Ciient s/w, and then doing the complete restore, The Retrospect Users Guide says: "WARNING: After restoring the files, do not restart Windows NT/2000/XP before restoring the registry information, as described below. Restore NT/2000/XP Registry Restore the Windows NT/2000/XP registry with the Registry Backup Manager (page 86). Start the Registry Backup Manager from its shortcut and click its Replace tab. Click the top Browse button and specify the source folder, which you just restored. Click the bottom Browse button to change the destination folder; specify the restored Windows system folder (often WINNT). Click Replace Now to replace the current registry with the backup." And on p. 86 it says: "Starting and Automating the Registry Backup Manager (NT/2000/XP Only) These steps are unnecessary under Windows 95/98/Me. You should already be logged in to the client computer with Administrator privileges. Go to the default installation path Program Files/Dantz/Client and double-click RegCopy. Enable daily, unattended saving of the registry by clicking On and Apply. Click the Help tab for more information. After Installation When the computer starts up it automatically loads the client software. The client is now ready to be accessed from the backup computer" Could someone take me step-by-step through this last Registry Backup Manager procedure? In particular, how do I access RegCopy? In the temp new System, the new Windows Retrospect Client has no "RegCopy" I can find, nor can I find any way to access any "RegCopy" from the main Retrospect program on my G4. Many thanks!
