Is there a prog to harvest driver data?

  AllThumbs 16:35 11 Mar 2006

Just wondering if there's a program to harvest driver data off my old hard drive so when I come to install a replacement I can easily have a cd/dvd to put them all back from.

Anyone know if this is feasible/exists?

i would imagine most drivers will be available for download.

Do you mean drivers for all the various hardware you have installed? If so, then you would be best downloading the latest versions from the manufacturer site. Not much fun but likely to be more sucessful.

Drivers are kept in so many places and installed in so many ways that it is not easy to "harvest" them all.

I have a small program 3.4mb that was the forerunner of Fruit Bat's link named WinDrivers Backup, which was freeware and is no loger available. If you wish I can e-mail it to you. It is fast and gives the option to back up MS Drivers/Non MS Drivers or all of them.

In WINDOWS>System32>Drivers you'll find them listed.

There are also other driver caches but you may have to do a search for them.
