    Great Tool. One thing, do I need to restore through the batch file? Cant I just import (double-click) the exported reg files?

    Hello Bob,

    The .bat file will delete your current registry entries before merging the backed up reg files.

    That won't happen by just double clicking on the reg files, and could cause an issue when merged on top of your existing folder views.

    1909 throws some errors when running the bat to restore the previously backed up settings. it still seems to work ok though as far as I can see.

    Hello Bob,

    If able, please post some screenshots showing these errors to see what they may be.

    It could just be a "folder not found" type error when the .bat is trying to delete folders that are not there. If so, it's nothing to worry about since the .bat is just making note of the error (folder already deleted) and will just continue on to the next command.

    It's most likely just saying it can't find some of the folders it's set to delete if they don't exist.

    Hello mbmalone,

    No worries. This is normal. It will still work.
