Use of the ERUNT/ERDNT system versus use of Windows XP System Restore facility
Posted on 2007-11-13
I'm trying to decide whether using the ERUNT/ERDNT system provides better operational results than the System Restore system. From the reading I have done, the opinion seems to be that there is a better overall functional troublefree result when using the ERUNT/ERDNT programs to back up and restore the registry on Windows XP.
Do most people agree with this?
Arguments against using the System Restore system are the following:
1) Inability to restore some of the restore points
2) System Restore is not actually restoring a complete registry when it functions but the ERUNt/ERDNT system does that.
3) The System Restore system consumes quite a bit of memory
Are these points all valid as reasons to reject System Restore?
Assuming I started using the ERUNT/ERDNT system, would it be best to completely disable the System Restore system and if so, what are the steps to do this?
If I disabled the System Restore system, how would I eliminate all the stored restore points?
Are there any arguments against using the ERUNT/ERDNT system?
