back up your drivers with the Double Driver© portable application in Windows® 7.

Drivers are essential software for the functioning of computer hardware. It is always a good idea to back them up to an external source in case you lose them due to computer problems. If you don’t back up your drivers and your operating system stops working, you might be in trouble.

Many PC manufacturers have their own drivers for crucial hardware and Windows® generic drivers won’t work. Usually, PC buyers are supplied with a CD or DVD containing the correct drivers. In a situation where you lost the CD or never had it, you have to use any third-party application to back your drivers.
