Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months.

Keeping Your Windows 7 Phone Safe with Reg Backup
The Windows Registry: It’s the heart and soul of machines running a Microsoft operating system. Whether you’re using a Windows Phone 7 device or a Windows 8 PC, the registry stores configurations and settings for everything from the OS to any number of third party applications. Without it, Windows would be crippled and unable to perform even basic, everyday tasks.
Yet despite its importance in the function of Windows devices, tuning the registry is a favorite pastime of tweakers and hackers alike. On desktop PC’s, backing up the registry before tweaking has long been possible. However, on WP7 this has not been the case. Thanks to XDA Forum Member EaterOfCorpses, WP7 users can now easily backup their registry, thanks to his latest application (the appropriately named) Reg Backup.
How easy is it? Simply open the app, and choose sections of the registry and output file name. Then hit the “Backup” button and presto: your registry has been backed up to a .reg file. It’s really simple and intuitive for even the newest of users. Head on over the original thread and give this beast a spin.
