    Has anyone had a problem with the XP Registry after doing a complete restore from a backup? I restored my hard drive from an image on an external drive. I had the primary backup image plus 3 increments. After completeing the restore and booting into Windows, I received a message that Windows detected a problem with the Registry and recovered it from a previous version. Well the previous version must have been an old one because all my settings seemed to reflect my computer when I first got it. I was able to use System Restore to get back to current settings. I had created the last image increment shortly before doing the restore. My system took a little while to shutdown after the last backup. I am using a Dell laptop and had restored to a spare hard drive in place of my normal hard drive. I have TI v8.0 Build 774.

    Hello johnpd,

    I've never seen that problem throughout TI versions 6, 7 and 8 up to build 826. I would say something must have queered your Registry prior to TI taking its snapshot of your HD at the beginning of the imaging process.

    Regards

    Hmmmmm

    The registry exists as as files in C:\WINNT\system32\config. I do not even know if it is possible, but if you can do an Explore on the image, and IF you use something like regedit or regedt32 to open the registry files from the mounted image, then you can try to see if the files will open (means that they are structurally correct). Further, you can try exporting both the image versions, and your current registry as text files, and then do a key-by-key compare to see what the problem is.

    Hello johnpd,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please note that Acronis True Image restores your drive to identically the same state it was when you created the image. If there were no problem during the restoration it is possible that the problem appeared before the image was created.

    Thank you.
