I'm trying to restore the system32/config/software registry hive from an xp backup utility bkf file but it isn't allowing me to do it.  It restores zero bytes.  It doesn't matter that I'm a local admin as well as the domain admin.

The XP standard Backup utility does not allow part of the registry to be restored - you can only restore the system state (which includes the complete  registry), if you included system state in the backup
