Using Registry Compressor:
How to Use Registry Compressor
You can start Registry Compressor from the Start Menu in Start | Programs | Registry Compressor or from a Desktop shortcut for the program. The Registry Compressor Wizard will open.
From the Wizard you can launch one of four actions:
Registry Compressor will now prepare to analyze the registry. Click Next to begin the analysis. This process will take several seconds to complete.
After Registry Compressor has finished analyzing the registry, the program will display a "map" of the blocks in the registry file as well as the estimated wasted space and file fragmentation. (Registry Compressor calculates these estimates based on sample pieces of your registry in order to save time during the analysis process). Red blocks in the map indicate gaps in the registry that degrade system performance.
Click 'Next' to proceed.
Registry Compressor is now ready to optimize and compress the registry. You are reminded to close all running applications - this is to prevent any applications from writing to the registry while the compaction is in process. Registry Compressor will automatically create a backup copy of your registry before compressing. Click Next to begin the backup process.
Once the backup is completed, you are now ready to perform the optimization and compression of the registry. Click Next to begin the optimization process.
After the compression process is complete, the program displays a summary of before and after information, including the amount of unused space and fragmentation percentages. Click Finish to exit Registry Compressor. Your system will automatically reboot.
Check Registry Integrity: This feature will quickly scan your registry file for structural integrity and provide the user with some details as to file size, number of hives, and estimates of wasted disc space based on 1% and 5% fragmentation levels.
Create Registry Backup: This function will create a new backup set of the existing registry. This can be useful if you are planning to manually make changes to your registry - if you make a change that causes your computer to not work correctly, you can restore the registry from the backup.
Restore Registry Backup: This feature lets you restore a previously backed up registry set (Windows 2000 / XP Home or Professional / 2003 Server).
