Hi Fred,

One question click in mind when heard about "PCData Back".

User moved his profile data folder on other partition/disk except desktop folder.
We make the backup with PCData Back.

1- We will restore the back on same PC.
Will it be restore correctly?

2- We will restore the backup on another PC.
Will it be restore all data on same partition like C:? or,
It will the exact copy on different partition.

Actually this was happened to me few years back. When I was not using UVK.
I have taken the backup from his office PC and restore it on home PC..... my bad ... ahhhhh...
I didn't aware that their IT personal used to moved the profile folders on other disk/partition.
Then I did the all things from scratch... you know whole PC with thousands of mails in outlook.

Hi Muhammad.

PCData Back detects when user folders have been moved and restores to their actual location.

By the way, UVK will soon have all PCData back features. Update is coming up today.

You can backup/restore the C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy folder, if that's what you mean. As for the registry saved GP, the answer is no, although it may be an interesting feature to add...
