I use Windows 7 backup and am about to reformat my PC. After I run Windows 7 backup which backs up my files to another hard drive, I am going to reformat the main drive and reinstall Windows 7. I have a complicated mapping of folders that I do and do not want Windows to back up and I don't feel like redoing it after the reinstall. If at all possible, I'd like to back up the backup settings so that I can apply them to the new installation. Is this possible?
I found the registry key where backup settings are stored. I think the sub key you want to backup is "ScheduleParams", possibly others, you may have to experiment.
