Tutorial - How to Backup Drivers?
IntroductionIf you are experiencing an operating system reinstallation or restoring or a driver failure, it must be painful to find the old driver CD left in some dusty corner, or even worse, to surf one website to another to find a driver that is exactly compatible with your device. Backing up all your drivers with Advanced Win Utilities Free is absolutely the safest and most convenient way to prevent those from happening. It can export any driver you want and when you need it, just restore them from the structured folders. It also exports browser cookies, IE Favorites & the registry to make them recoverable after crashes or other disasters.
Step 1. Activate Free Driver Backup ToolLaunch Advanced Win Utilities Free and in "System Tweak" tab, click "Driver Backup" in "DRIVERS & REGISTRY" group to activate the free driver backup tool.
Step 2. Scan DriversLaunch Free Driver Backup and some recommended drivers will be displayed in the window. Choose one driver and you'll see its related info like device, date, version, etc. If needed, click "Scan Driver" to choose "Scan all drivers" and the program will list all the drivers installed on your computer.
Step 3. Select DriversClick "Select All" to choose all the drivers. The "Select Invert" command inverts the selection in the current window. That means all of the drivers which were previously selected are now unselected, and vice versa. If there was no selection before, the command selects the entire drivers.
Step 4. Backup DriversThe program provides 3 ways to backup the drivers - "Backup selected drivers"/"Backup recommended drivers"/"Backup all drivers" and you can choose one according to you needs. You can also press hotkey F9/F10/F11 to perform the corresponding actions. Within several seconds, the backup process will be complete. Click "Backup - Browse backup folder..." to directly open the folder that stores the backed-up drivers.
You can also go to "Plugin" tab to back up cookies, your IE favorites and registries.
