    does anyone know how to backup and restore file associations?

    i found the following;

    FTYPE >backup_types.txt
    ASSOC >backup_ext.txt

    FOR /F "tokens=* delims=" %%G IN (backup_types.txt) DO FTYPE %%G
    FOR /F "tokens=* delims=" %%G IN (backup_ext.txt) DO ASSOC %%G

    the above however do not restore my file associations after a reinstall.

    backing up reg entry's doesn't seem to work either, i still have to re-associate my apps with the file extension..o_O

    is there some other method i'm missing?

    that didn't work either, saves the custom associations but doesn't restore them.
