Regshot Portable 1.8.3 Beta 2 has been released. Regshot is lightweight registry and file comparison utlity for taking before and after snapshots of the Windows registry and file system. It is useful in determining where an application stores its data and how it affects a PC. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. And it's open source and completely free.
Regshot can snapshot the registry and an entire drive or portion of a drive before and after a given event and then compare the two snapshots to determine what has changed. This is especially helpful in determining where an application stores its data and what changes it makes to the local PC when it runs. Reports can be saved as plain text or HTML files for later use. Regshot doesn't make any changes to the registry itself or the local file system.
Helpful Tip: Regshot can pause or fail to complete on systems with larger registries. It works best if you start it and then don't interact with the window or switch focus away from it while it is working.
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
Regshot Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.
