Registry Mechanic 5.0

Anyone used the "compact and optimise your registry" option in RM?

A bit nervous about firing it up unless it's worth doing!

Yes but not routinely. I've just run the scan and it says I can recover 2% of space. I'll give it a go - If I go AWOL you'll know what's happened ;o)

I have just used it and like VoG™ it "recovered 2% of space.

Reading the detail of what it does the process is similar (but not the same) as defragging your PC including the boot records. I use Diskeeper which does that for me anyway si it is not surprising about the low % figure.

Clearly I have survived the experience!

I forgot to add that after I did it a button appeared saying I could roll back the optimisation, rather like a system restore for compaction.

I'm back - but no discernible change in performance.

Thanks both!
I shall likely give it a go also.
