ERUNT AutoBackup Fails

Here is the command line for the ERUNT shortcut in the Startup folder.

D:\BACKUP~1\ERUNT\AUTOBACK.EXE %SystemRoot%\ERDNT\AutoBackup\#Date# /noconfirmdelete /noprogresswindow

The idea is to backup the Registry each time XP starts. It doesn't work. Is there a fix?

Strange, I do exactly the same thing myself, and it has always worked.

This is my shortcut run properties -

"C:\Utilities\Registry Utilities\NT Restore XP\AUTOBACK.EXE" D:\WIN-NT\RegBack\AutoBackup\#Date# sysreg curuser otherusers /noconfirmdelete /noprogresswindow /days:5

Try using an absolute path instead of %SystemRoot%.

Well, the path is resolved fine as it can be seen in the posted screenshot:

%SystemRoot%\ERDNT\AutoBackup\#Date#

becomes:

C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT\Autobackup\2-22-2016\ERDNT.INF

 

that first error is usually connected to NTFS permissions, whilst the second is likely due to an already existing file. :unsure:

Actually, I've now had another thought about this.

I also use ERUNT to back up my Windows 8.1 registry on the first boot of every day, and that is using an NTFS drive of course.

I couldn't get it to work no matter what I tried using a startup folder shortcut, as I had always used in XP, and eventually I had to set it up to run from a Windows Scheduled Task, set with highest privileges.

You may well need to do the same even with XP if it's on an NTFS drive.
