    Hey guys?

    I am going to do this: http://rsivanandan.wordpress.com/2006/08/06/move-documents-and-settings-folder/

    Move the Documents and Settings folder to a different drive (sicn the guy who fixed my computer didn't do RAID and so I now have three partitions, of which everything is installed in one).

    So... I backed up my registry by doing Export. I want to know how I can fix the registry from this if something goes wrong. I need to be prepared before the computer breaks.

    Whenever I go mucking around in the registry I always do a complete backup with ERUNT. If anything goes wrong you double-click on the backup and it does a complete restore.

    Thanks. I kind of think maybe it would be better to just uninstall most programs and put them on the new drive rather than muck with the registry.
