Easexp Settings Backup

Back up, restore, sync Windows and program settings.

Easexp Settings Backup (ExSB) is a tool to back up, restore, and sync Windows system settings such as date time, formats, wallpaper, colors, taskbar, group policy, firewall rules, disabled services, tasks, events etc., and the settings of popular programs such as Office, Firefox, Edge, Chrome and so on.

ExSB is not designed for backing up common files, although it's able to. You can consider ExSB to be like the Windows Sync, only it's a real backup tool that can save those settings in files or folders, and restore them to the system at any time you want.

Backup, Restore and Sync

During your use of Windows and your favorite apps, you have adjusted them a lot to meet your needs. You do NOT want to do that over and over again each time after rebuilding or resetting the system. You want a tool to save those settings and restore them back whenever necessary.

You also want to sync those settings across different OS versions or computers, e.g., transfer your settings from Windows 7 to Windows 10, or even from Windows 10 to Windows 7.

That's what ExSB is designed for.

Easexp Settings Backup a.k.a. ExSB, can back up those system and application settings, and restore them to the same system at any time, or sync them to a different system.

More Setting Items to Back Up

  1. Detailed setting items - Down to each specific category such as "Date Time", "File Explorer", "Taskbar Pinned Icons", much better for users who want to take full and advanced control.
  2. Additional system settings - Disabled services, tasks, events, power options and other system-wide settings, which are not supported by Windows Sync.
  3. Application settings - ExSB also supports backing up the settings of popular applications such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Office, etc. More applications will be added over time.

Much Flexible

  1. Not only can you choose which items to back up, you can also choose which items to restore to the system from a backup.
  2. Settings are backed up to zip files or folders directly. Data in a backup can be easily examined and manually restored if you want to. Registry entries are saved in .reg files, which can be imported directly into the system in most cases.
  3. ExSB doesn't limit to only sync settings from earlier OS to newer. You can back up settings from Windows 10, then restore them to Windows 7.
  4. You can choose to back up settings only without actual data, for some special items, e.g., backing up the location of documents folder, but not the files in it. Why?
  5. Restore settings without restarting computer, or only reload Windows Explorer when possible. It doesn't require admin privileges when performing backup for most setting items.

A Real Backup Tool

ExSB is not just only a sync tool. It is a backup program that can actually save settings to a zip file or a folder directly, instead of simply synchronizing them. The backups can be saved and copied to any storage media, and can be restored to current system or other systems at any time.

In addition to backing up system and app settings, ExSB can also be configured to back up common files and folders, even registry entries, with its User Defined items.


Color Theme

ExSB has been designed to fully support color themes. There are built-in color themes such as "Light", "Dark", "Blue", "Green". You can add new color themes, or modify the existing ones.

Well, we were actually only planning to create some customized buttons in the first place...

Then we decided all UI should be color-themed, including the popup menus, scroll boxes, etc. A color theme library was eventually created, and can be used by other products of ours in the future.
