ONE OF THE MOST time-consuming tasks after reinstalling Windows is restoring program settings. CloneApp ( www.mirinsoft.com) enables you to selectively back up key directories and Registry settings where apps store their preferences. Nearly 250 program and Windows settings are plugged into the program—just locate your app, check the box, and it backs everything up, but you can also add your own custom files and Registry entries, too.
Once Windows and your apps have been reinstalled, just launch CloneApp and click “Restore” to put everything back again. To selectively restore program settings, open the CloneApp\Backup directory, and remove any settings you want to exclude before running CloneApp.
