How To Backup Windows 7 DriversIf you have ever gone through the aggravation of your hard drive failing and having to reinstall everything you may have an idea of the pain and frustration it can cause. 
With a bit of luck you will have backed up all the important files, photos and music onto a spare hard drive or onto one of the many on line storage facility's like Dropbox etc.
But even if you have done this and saved your files religiously you can still have problems as I found out myself  (there is a reason for this post, my main hard drive failed on me this week). What about all the drivers you need to run your system, because some PC manufactures don't include a driver backup disk. Even if they did supply a disk, you may have upgraded your machine so you can still come unstuck with drivers.
Double Driver is a utility that can save you  having problems with drivers. It will scan your machine and back up all the drivers on it and save them where ever you want. I have saved my drivers in two places, on my D: drive and also Dropbox.
