The first time Win98 boots each day, it runs the Registry Checker utility to look for errors, then backs up your Registry and SYSTEM.DAT, SYSTEM.INI, USER.DAT and WIN.INI files. The backups are stored in CAB files in C:\WINDOWS\SYSBCKUP and named RB000.CAB, RB001.CAB and so on. You can't see them unless you set Explorer to Show All Files in My Computer/View/Folder Options/View. If you don't frequently back up your system, you should at least put a recent backup on a diskette before making Registry changes or installing new software.
