Anyone who has been using any Windows OS for some time now knows that you have to reinstall the OS at least once every year. Whether its a deadly virus, hard disk crash or just that Windows has eaten up your partition and is now crawling like a snail, you will always find some or the other reason to reinstall Windows.
If you have a branded desktop which came with drivers disk or a restore disk, you can easily install all the drivers once you are done with the reinstall. However, if you are from the majority herd who have assembled their desktops from the grey market, chances are that you will start hunting for device drivers immediately after you re-install Windows.
For such situations, you can use Double Driver, a free Windows utility to back up all your device drivers in a single folder.
Double driver comes as a stand alone exe which will scan your machine and give you a list of all the devices installed. From here, you can choose which drivers to back up. Specify the location where you want the back up to be created and you will be all prepared to install the relevant drivers once you reinstall the OS.
