9. Restore Full Registry Backup

Revo Uninstaller Pro creates a full Registry backup once each day it is started. It also, by default, creates a full Registry backup on each program uninstallation. This can be disabled in the Options. The full Registry backup is done in addition to the regular backups of all Registry entries that Revo Uninstaller Pro deletes.

Full Registry backups should be used only if the Backup Manager cannot restore removed items, or if Windows does not start properly anymore!
