    Hi, anyone know programs similar to deepfreeze / SD/rollback that allows certain registry retaining..?
    deepfreeze allows this but its limited to hkey local machine..
    while the program that i want keeps its registry setting in hkey current user..
    the program is fences pro from stardock..
    its a desktop organizer program fyi..

    Im designing for a gaming center, and the problem is that it needs to be updated with games quite often...
    what im trying to achieve here is synchronization of fences pro layout, so whenever a change occurs (new shortcut for new games) i can push it to clients from server..
    thanks

    You can backup your registry manually through: regedit>File Export. CCleaner asks to backup the registry prior cleaning.

    thanks, but thats not what i mean, i know how to backup registry keys.
    the problem is that im working with hundreds of pc, and each of them is deepfreezed..

    and i need to change certain registry keys quite often..
    so my option would be to sync that registry key from a server to clients
    , while maintaining the freeze state for each machine..
    and i cant find the program that does this..

    CCleaner only backs up the registry entries of the entries it is going to clean... not the whole registry.

    cleanslate seems to have this feature..
    but looks like its buggy and less secure

    Take a look @ KLS Backup Pro. You can backup specific registry hives and/or specific keys. Yes, KLS Backup runs on Win Server or client.

    You'll probably have to get creative with how you would keep those changes sync'd between client PC's.
