    Ccleaner


    I appreciate your refining the process so I have it right if and when......
    If I do a registry backup , the whole thing as the Ccleaner prompts and not just a part, I just right click on the icon created and the registry is restored. Does a copy go to my documents folder?
    I am asking because there are a couple of comments and I want to be sure I have it right. I know those more skilled can do parts but I am referring the backup Ccleaner does generally speaking when asks if you want to restore with a yes or no.

    Not necessarily saved in your document folder. Different programs have their own repository, some will prompt you where you want to save the backup, others might silently backup but usually either in the installed folder or under C:\programData\XXX where XXX is the application name

    I'm unaware of any feature in the free version of CCleaner that creates a backup copy of the Registry. When I remove entries from the registry, only the stuff removed is saved in the .reg file.

    You get to choose the directory where the backups are saved. I made a folder in my documents directory.

    Yes, I thought you wisely cleaned parts, not the whole. I was asking hypothetically if one were to click to cleanup the registry as a whole. and then select you would like to back it up, which it in fact does, do you simply click on the merge backup icon? Apparently you right click then click merge -correct?

    >>Yes even with the free version, it asks you if you wish to back up the registry.
