Registry Crash Protection
Recover from a Crash in Two Minutes!!!
WinRescue backs up the Registry and important configuration files, packs the Registry, troubleshoots problems, provides fivefold protection from system crashes, backs up any and all files that you desire, and much more (see below).

  • Windows 2000 Won't Start?

    WinRescue 2000 has several ways to get Win2000 up and running again, including, DOS Version of WinRescue, Boot Disk/Win2000 ERD, and Win2000 Setup Disks.

  • Did a Program Mess up Windows?

    WinRescue makes snapshots of Windows.   If you install a program that messes up Windows, just use the Crash Fixer to restore Windows to the way it was before.

  • FIVEfold Protection
    WinRescue has five ways to restore:
    1. to Backup Set,
    2. to Spare Registry,
    3. from Diskette,
    4. to Repair Registry
    5. or use WinNT Setup Disks.

    Please note that the registry may only be backed up and restored by the Administrator.

  • RegPack the Registry
    Removes the mush and rebuilds the Registry decreasing the size of the Registry and allowing Windows to run more effieciently.

  • Windows Troubleshooters
    Troubleshooters can help you track down problems in Windows. The following troubleshooters can be run from the Repair tab of WinRescue.
    • Client Service for Netware,
    • Display,
    • Hardware,
    • Internet Connections,
    • Modem,
    • MS-DOS Programs,
    • Multimedia and Games,
    • Networking - TCP/IP,
    • Print,
    • Remote Access,
    • Sound,
    • System Setup, and
    • Windows 3.1 Programs.

  • Start Protecting your Data with WinRescue Now
    Now is the time to start backing up your data.   You never know when something will happen that could wipe everything out.   Be ready with WinRescue. WinRescue can be set up to run automatically.  It can run minimized so that you can go on with your business.
    It is a good idea to back up to another drive.   WinRescue will back up to harddrive, diskette, CD, DVD, DDCD, Zip Drive, Network Drive, and any device that can be copied to in Windows Explorer.

  • Backup and Restore Wizards
    Wizards provide step-by-step instructions through the backup and restore process.

  • Open ZIP Files
    The Extractor in WinRescue will open zip files and extract files from them.

  • An Uninstaller
    Run Backup before installing an application (especially if you are only trying it out).   Then if it messes up your computer or you uninstall it soon afterwards, run WinRescue's Crash Fixer to return your operating system back to the way it was before the application was installed (this will remove the hidden entries that applications often leave in the registry).

  • Quick Transfer of Files between Computers
    With the Backup Properties set on No Compression and Replace, WinRescue will transfer selected folders and files from one computer to another computer on a network (this works good to keep your laptop in sync with your desktop and vice versa).

  • Five Backup Types
    • Full Backup backs up all of the specified files.
    • Incremental Backup only backs up files that have changed since the last Full or Incremental backup. Backed up files will not be backed up again until they change.
    • Differential Backup only backs up files that have changed since the last Full or Incremental backup. Backed up files will be backed up again on the next Backup.
    • Replace opens up the Backup File and replaces any of the specified files that are different.
    • Full (Archive not reset) Backup backs up all of the specified files, but does not reset the Archive attribute (this is for programs like Quicken which do not like the attributes of their files changed).

  • Specify Four Different Configs
    Use WinRescue's default or create up to four different setups (configs) that decide what happens during Backup.   For example, one config could back up the registry to the hard drive, a second config could back up recently changed files to the Zip drive, and a third config could backup other files to a network drive.

  • Back up Any Files, Directories, or Types of Files that you Want
    Selecting files to back up is as easy as clicking a checkbox from the Explorer-type list.   Wildcards can be used to specify types of files to back up, such as, *.txt for all text files.

  • Boot Disk
    Creates a special bootup diskette for when you cannot get to the first menu of WinNT.   Just insert the bootup diskette and restart the computer.   The menu will be displayed that lets you choose operating systems, like, DOS, Win95, or Win2000.

  • Change Target Directory for Backups
    Decide where a Backup Set will be placed.   Back up to hard drive, diskette, Zip Drive, Network Drive, CD, DDCD, or DVD.

  • Number of Backups
    WinRescue keeps track of how many backups it has made and automatically deletes excess backups.   Choose to allow 1 to 10,000 backups.

  • Use WinRescue's Defaults.
    If you don't know which files to back up, use WinRescue's default selections.   The following items are available by default.
    • Registry Files
    • Initiation Files
    • Print Hood
    • Start Menu
    • Desktop
    • Favorites
    • Application Data
    • Recent
    • Net Hood
    • Send To
    • IE Cache
    • Control Panel
    • Nine Important Files

  • Automatic Features
    At specified intervals (daily, weekly, bimonthly, monthly, or never) WinRescue 2000 will automatically perform the following operations:
    • Start WinRescue and Wait
    • Back up 1st. Config
    • Back up 2nd. Config
    • Back up 3rd. Config
    • Back up 4th. Config

    Run any of the above functions at certain times using the Task Scheduler.

  • Backup Manager
    The Backup Manager tells where Backup Sets are located and easily deletes, renames, and adds them.

  • Verifies Backups
    If you choose, after a backup is made WinRescue will go back and checks the integrity of the backup to make sure that it is good.

  • DOS Version
    WinRescue 2000 comes with a DOS version, just in case you cannot get into Windows2000.   The DOS version will restore Windows2000 outside of Windows2000 from the spare registry, WinRescue backups, or the repair registry. The DOS version will not work when Win2000 is installed on a NTFS partition.

  • Compress Backup Files
    Choose the Compression Ratio of Backups.   Choose from:
    • Do Not Compress
    • Low/Fast Compression
    • Medium Compression
    • High/Slow Compression
    • Higher/Slower Compression
    • Highest/Slowest Compression

  • Use the Extractor to restore individual files
    The Extractor opens WinRescue backup files, displays the enclosed files, and allows the user to choose which files to restore.   Restore to original location, temporary directory, or to specified location.

  • PKZip Backups
    Backup Sets that are compressed are PKZip compatible.   So if you don't want to use WinRescue 2000 to restore, you can use WinZip or pkunzip.exe.

  • Easy Help
    Tips appear when the cursor is over certain buttons.   Help buttons provide immediate access to more detailed help.   One tutorial and two wizards are also included.

Please Note - WinRescue 2000 works ONLY with Windows2000.
For Win95 use WinRescue 95 - For Win98 use WinRescue 98 - For WinNT4 use WinRescue NT - For WinME use WinRescue ME - For WinXP use WinRescue XP
