    Batch File Backups For Registry

    This file backs up the Registry and several other critical files to a
    directory called "C:\registry":

    C:
    cd \
    if not exist registry md registry
    c:\windows\command\attrib -R -H c:\WINDOWS\USER.DAT
    c:\windows\command\attrib -R -H c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT
    if exist c:\registry\user.dat c:\windows\command\attrib -r -h c:\registry\user.dat
    if exist c:\registry\system.dat c:\windows\command\attrib -r -h c:\registry\system.dat
    COPY c:\WINDOWS\USER.DAT c:\registry\user.dat
    COPY c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT c:\registry\system.dat
    COPY c:\WINDOWS\WIN.INI c:\registry\win.ini
    COPY c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI c:\registry\system.ini
    COPY c:\WINDOWS\PROTOCOL.INI c:\registry\protocol.ini
    c:\windows\command\attrib +R +H c:\WINDOWS\USER.DAT
    c:\windows\command\attrib +R +H c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT
    c:\windows\command\attrib +r +h c:\registry\user.dat
    c:\windows\command\attrib +r +h c:\registry\system.dat
    if exist c:\config.sys COPY C:\CONFIG.SYS c:\registry\config.sys
    if exist c:\autoexec.bat COPY C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
    c:\registry\autoexec.bat

    This file restores everything saved by the first file:

    CLS
    @echo Run this in full DOS (clean boot or Safe Mode Command
    Prompt) ONLY!
    @echo.
    Pause
    CLS
    c:
    cd\
    if not exist c:\registry\*.* goto error
    c:\windows\command\attrib -R -H c:\WINDOWS\USER.DAT
    c:\windows\command\attrib -R -H c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT
    c:\windows\command\attrib -r -h c:\registry\user.dat
    c:\windows\command\attrib -r -h c:\registry\system.dat
    copy c:\registry\user.dat c:\WINDOWS\USER.DAT
    copy c:\registry\system.dat c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT
    copy c:\registry\win.ini c:\WINDOWS\WIN.INI
    copy c:\registry\system.ini c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI
    copy c:\registry\protocol.ini c:\WINDOWS\PROTOCOL.INI
    copy c:\registry\config.sys C:\CONFIG.SYS
    copy c:\registry\autoexec.bat C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
    c:\windows\command\attrib +R +H c:\WINDOWS\USER.DAT
    c:\windows\command\attrib +R +H c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT
    c:\windows\command\attrib +r +h c:\registry\user.dat
    c:\windows\command\attrib +r +h c:\registry\system.dat
    pause
    CLS
    @echo Done. Please reboot now.
    goto end
    :error
    echo No restore files found.
    :end


    I needed a way to let me make networking changes, and then undo them
    reliably, completely and more rapidly than a system restore or rebuild.
    There are many commercial and freeware tools--- things like Go Back or
    WinME's System Restore or Win98's own ScanReg--- but I was (1) in a hurry
    and (2) needed something I could dissect and modify and thus be 100% sure
    of *exactly* what system components I was and was not backing up (no all-
    in-a-lump . Cab files, for example).


    Bill's original version contained more warnings and safeguards, and would
    be better for novices--- although novices probably shouldn't be diddling
    with the Registry in the first place. <g> And as with all system changes,
    it's best to have a full backup before you do anything at all.

    That said, the above files are infinitely modifiable to save (or omit)
    whatever you want in whatever location you want, and by whatever names you
    want. Just copy and paste the above to your C:\ directory, edit each as
    desired, and name them whatever you want (with a .BAT file extension, such
    as rbackup.bat and rrestore.bat).

    Whenever you're about to make changes to system settings, boot to DOS and
    run the first batch file. Then run Windows normally and make your changes.
    If the changes don't work out and you can't fully undo them by normal
    means, boot to DOS and run the second batch file to put the system
    settings back the way they were. Simple! (And certain--- and free!)

    Thanks again, Bill Korbet. & Fred Langa

    CacheMan 4 Arrives


    In the new version 4, "...the GUI has been redesigned and offers
    customizable monitoring functions and history graphs for memory, disk
    cache, swap file and GDI resources. The help file has been greatly
    improved so even novice users can learn more about the Disk Cache
    subject.... Cacheman is a utility which tweaks the Disk Cache settings of
    Windows 95/98/ME. It helps prevent frequent swapping of the data to hard
    drive resulting in an improved performance, system reaction time and even
    stability. Besides this Cacheman corrects also generic problems on systems
    with more than 512MB of RAM."
