Recovering Windows 7 User Registry Entries From UnBootable (but readable) Hard Drive
Posted on 2012-08-22
I have an damaged (unbootable) win 7 hard drive, but it can be read as a slave or via USB connection to a working machine. Recoverring the files isn't a problem -- they copied easily.
I attempted to run an image (Acronis), but it failed, as did cloning attempts (Acronis, Clonezilla, Spotmau).
Since the user was dead in the water without his PC, I decided to just restore an image created from the same model PC, but I would like to recover the primary user's registry settings from the "old" drive. (I believe the \system32\config file isn't damaged, but can't tell yet). Any ideas?
