    On boot a lot is written to the registry so it's not a good time to backup you can just export it from regedit or CMD line

    How would I do that to schedule it?

    Hi there

    What's wrong with using the standard Windows registry backup -- as people have pointed out run it as a scheduled task.

    I still think though if you have a decent SSD why not backup the whole OS - only takes around 10 mins with decent SSD's and system.

    OK if slow system then it *could* be worth while backing up registry - but if you are installing / uninstalling stuff you could get registry out of sync with what you've actually got on the computer when you restore it.

    Cheers
