driver save&restore?





TomS
Hi there.
I want to setup WinXP again. Unfortunately I lost many of the driver CDs.
Is there a way to save the drivers that are already on the pc and restore them after installing XP? Like copying the folder "inf" oder "drivers"?

Thanks for your answers.

Well, what you could do is download ZIPs from the internet of the drivers you need. If you can't find a driver, you can try to pinpoint the driver in C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers, but I must warn you the drivers don't have the most clear names out there.
TomS
Yeah. What if I copy the whole folder? Not only single files. Would that cause a problem?

Try to give a look at this software http://www.zhangduo.com/driverbackup.html

It finds the drivers hidden into INF files and shows them to you within a list.
You can backup, update and/or restore them as much as you desire! Smile

The only bad news is that it's not freeware.

Bye!
