The problem is it does not seem to work, or I am doing something wrong. I deleted the entire HKLM>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion hive
I restart and issue the command scanreg /restore
It lists 6 backups, None of them work, I get the message "System Restore Operation Failed"
Microsoft KB tells me that scanreg first trys to backup your current registry, and has no more room due to MaxBackupCopies setting inside scanreg.ini
Ok so I either increase the value of MaxBackupCopies or I rename/delete old backups, I try both these methods, but I continue to recieve the discribed error.
Currently scanreg lists only 3 registry backups, and MaxBackupCopies=7
What am I doing worng?
I will say that prior to deleteing the hive, I did a scanregw /backup
Could this have been my downfall?
