I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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
