The Winrescue 7 page states that parts of WinRescue 7 are NOT compatible with 64-bit. What parts? File backup seems to work fine. Is it registry? Is there any plan to correct this & when? Thanks Ross Smith

The only parts that do not work properly in Windows 7 64bit are Registry Backup, Registry Pack (RegPack), and Registry Restore. This is the result of a bug in Windows. It is not a problem in WinRescue. When Microsoft fixes the bug (I doubt they will), WinRescue will work properly.
We have received a few reports like this concerning Win7 but when we try it on our computers (with 32bit and 64bit) we cannot reproduce the problem. We have never had RegVac take 30-40 minutes to do a scan. Maybe the problem is with your computer and the fact that Win7 takes more resources to function and so RegVac is not allowed to run as fast. I don't know.
