How to Backup Drivers?

By one click, PCBooster Free Driver Backup helps create backups of all your PC drivers in well categorized folders. Just pick any of them for immediate use whenever you encounter a driver error.

How to Use PCBooster Free Driver Backup to Backup Drivers?

Step 1Scan Drivers

Launch PCBooster 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, provider, date, version, etc. If needed, click "Scan Driver" tab to choose "Scan All Drivers" and the program will list all the drivers installed on your computer. The "Scan Driver" button at the right only scans for recommended drivers.

Tip: why driver backup is important? Because system manufacturers rarely supply drivers on disc anymore - if you ever need to format your hard disk and reinstall operating system, you might find yourself without critical drivers.
