UBCD Version 5-is there a list of changes since version 4?

I note the change log/version history but it does not give me a complete list of what has changed or if this will work on Vista/Windows 7 in terms of at least recovering the registry without losing all restore points. Read that with UBCD4WIN package Vista and Win 7 can be problematic in restore point recovery when using the built in tools.

Thanks for any comments

Are you referring to UBCD For Windows or UBCD?

They are different projects. UBCD is pretty much OS-independent.

I guess I was referring to UBCD4WIN which I have used in the past to help people. Sorry.

However that raises a question. Perhaps with UBCD I could boot a Windows PC (XP, VIsta, 7) and perhaps mount an NTFS drive or however it works and then restore a registry from the hidden System Volume Information subdirectory on Drive C:
Is this possible UBCD - through the usual DOS commands (CD, Copy, etc..)???

Thanks so much

You can mount an NTFS volume using Parted Magic, a Linux distro included with UBCD V5.

There are also two Windows registry -related apps found on UBCD:

- Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

- PC Regedit (module under Parted Magic).
