Baku

Main



The main window allows you to select one of four different wizards to begin simply select one of them and click 'Next'.

The 'Registry' menu Allows you to export a complete copy of your system registry for backup purposes, restore a complete backup or optimize the registry by compacting it.

The 'Drivers' menu allows you to backup and restore device drivers. It identifies all the hardware in the system, extracts their associated drivers from the hard disk and backs them up to a location of your choice. Then when you format and reinstall/upgrade your operating system, you can restore all the saved drivers just as if you had the original driver disks. After one system reboot, your PC will be loaded and running with the required hardware drivers.

Note: Microsoft device drivers are automatically installed when detected, so it is NOT necessary to back them up.

Allows you to select a different user interface language.
Restore changes made by Baku on the system registry.
