Windows 98 automatic registry backups can become damaged or unusable just like any other file. If the functionality of my PC was important to me and downtime wasn't an option, and I wanted assurance that I would be able to recover from a corrupted registry, I would manually export the registry and copy it off onto another media type. Like I said, better safe than sorry.There is no need to do an export of the registry since backups are being taken on the first boot of the day.
No offense, but nowhere in this thread did moinkansas indicate that he had tested/verified whether or not these registry backups with the odd dates worked OK. You're making an assumption here and telling moinkansas NOT to err on the side of caution. I don't think that's the best advice to give someone.Even though the creation date of the file is wrong, it is still a valid registry backup and can be used to restore, if required.
