In 98 you have a folder called sysbackup. It has 5 cab files which are backups of the system.dat and user.dat to restore a good copy of your registry. You execute these files by using the scanreg /restore command in the Dos-prompt. I know you know all of this but I wanted to make my question clear and simple. How do you do this procedure in Win2k ?

When you back up the System State via NTBackup, a copy of the registry is also saved in %SystemRoot%\Repair\Regback. These are the same hive files that are in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Config directory (Default, SAM, Security, Software, and System). The fact that these files are all in one place can make it easier to restore the registry without restoring the entire drive (in case that procedure is required).
