    im wondering why my pc doesnt make a back up every day my pc starts i just checked the regscan/restore and the lates backup it brought up was in october.. this is whats in my scanreg.ini and also my scanreg.ini is in my c:\windows folder not my c:windows\systbackup folder is that rite?


    ;
    ; Scanreg.ini for making system backups.
    ;

    ;Registry backup is skipped altogether if this is set to 0
    Backup=1

    ;Registry automatic optimization is skipped if this is set to 0
    Optimize=1

    ScanregVersion=0.0001
    MaxBackupCopies=5

    ;Backup directory where the cabs are stored is
    ; <windir>\sysbckup by default. Value below overrides it.
    ; It must be a full path. ex. c:\tmp\backup
    ;
    BackupDirectory=

    ; Additional system files to backup into cab as follows:
    ; Filenames are separated by ','
    ; dir code can be:
    ; 10 : windir (ex. c:\windows)
    ; 11 : system dir (ex. c:\windows\system)
    ; 30 : boot dir (ex. c:\)
    ; 31 : boot host dir (ex. c:\)
    ;
    ;Files=[dir code,]file1,file2,file3
    ;Files=[dir code,]file1,file2,file3

    Do Start > Run > MSCONFIG > Startup Tab
    and RE-select the ScanRegistry entry.

    If you don't have it there, post back.
