View Full Version : registry



06-01-2001, 12:31 PM
having tried to export my registry to a floppy found that this was impossible as it was too large and was given the error message 'error writing file ther may be a disk of file system error.'
Eventually exported it to a folder on my hard disk.
Investigating very slowly the wonders of the registry I found that I have items like OldDisplayName.
Old locale
Old stub path
Old version
Can I eliminate these safely and will that bring down the size of the registry such that I can keep it on a floppy.?
Sorry for the naivety of the query but I cant seem to find anything about how you can control the registryand its size.
