Win32DiskImager

If you ever needed to clone a USB, SD Memory card, etc. Using Win32DiskImager is a excellent program tool for the job.

Win32DiskImager, enabled you to save and restore raw images to removable media.  I have been using this for my Raspberry Pi installs and other USB Bootable media as a way to quickly backup and restore without having to do full re-installs.

HowTo: Export Putty Sessions

I just rebuilt my workstation and now on the new system I would like to have all my saved Putty sessions. Putty doesn’t have a built in export feature for this. So I went looking for where Putty store its sessions info.

As there it is. In the registry, like so many other things. Here are some quick steps to do this:

  1. From the run prompt (shortcut keys: WinKey+R) enter regedit,, this opens the registry editor
  2. Locate the following branch: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\Sessions
  3. On the File menu, click Export
  4. In File name, enter a name for the registry file; In my case I named this Putty_Sessions
  5. Choose a location to save the file; You can now copy this file and import your the sessions data on the new system.

Update: I changed the export to the following

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SimonTatham]
