Tweaking.com Registry Backup v1.10.1 Updated

Checker on 21 Oct 2014

Tweaking.com Registry Backup does live registry backups using Windows' own Volume Shadow Copy Service. The program is user-friendly and allows selection of specific registry files to backup or restore. Restored backups can be done via Safe Mode or from the recovery console.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the Portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Launch TweakingRegistryBackup.exe
  3. In the Settings tab, enter a relative path as the Backup Location

Note: If you are likely to want to restore from the recovery console, use a path relative to the drive root (e.g., "\RegBackup"), otherwise the restore script will fail.
What's new?
  • Fixed a bug where the registry wouldn't restore if the user had changed the temp folders to another drive. The program will now always use C:\Windows\Temp to restore the registry. This is because of Windows security, Windows will not allow registry files from another drive to be loaded. The registry must be on the same drive as Windows in order to restore it.
  • Fixed a bug where if the settings.ini file was deleted or a user updated the program from from a older version and the settings.ini file didn't have the color information set that the colors wouldn't be set correctly, such as black text over the dark grey background. The program has now been updated to apply the proper default colors when this happens.
  • Multiple code improvements and changes.
  • Changed and updated multiple icons and graphics in the program.

Regardless of its size, this is a keeper for me. This browser is impressive. Fast, highly customizable, and a lot easier to update.

To be fair, Slimjet includes builtin PDF viewer and pepper flash player plugin. That's 20MB+. If you don't need that, you can delete those. And you can remove all the language files that you don't need under the locales folder and language folder. And if you don't ever play any games based on the NaCl technology, feel free to remove nacl_irt_x86_32.nexe and nacl_irt_x86_64.nexe .

Their SlimBoat is a lot slimmer. But Slimjet is the better choice to go for me in terms of speed and site compatibility.

I don't know about the Opera 12. That seems a very old version. But I checked opera 24 and its unpacked size is 150MB+.

PhraseExpress normally auto-adapts to the language set in the regional settings of Microsoft Windows.

Here is a step-by-step procedure how to set PhraseExpress to English language:

This also disables the automatic language detection. Hope, this helps.

I'm using the latest version of PhraseExpress Portable on XP Pro, but it's putting two files (config.xml and pexdesktop.xml) into my Documents and Setting/Application Data/PhraseExpress folder.

Is there any way to change where these files are stored, so that the true portability of this application can be made?

Ennovy on 2014-10-08 13:45

Please read above "How to extract"
Start de programm with the -portable parameter
and all settings are stored in the application folder
