Now that you’ve updated all your drivers with Driver Detective, you may want to backup the drivers you’ve downloaded so you can install them again without having to re-download them. This is a simple process and only takes a couple of minutes.
Let’s get started
Fire up Driver Detective and click the History button.
Choose which drivers to backup
On the Downloaded History screen, check the boxes next to the drivers you want to include in the backup.
Now click on Backup Selected at the bottom of the screen. This will launch the Driver Backup Wizard.
On the Welcome to the Driver Backup Wizard screen click Next at the bottom of the page. This will take you to the Choose Backup Location screen.
Selecting a backup location
Now you need to choose whether to backup your drivers to a CD/DVD-ROM or external media and select the drive from the dropdown menu.
Now is a good time to insert a CD/DVD-ROM if you haven’t already done so.
Now click on Browse and select the folder where you want to backup your drivers to and click OK.
Then click Next at the bottom of the screen.
Writing the backup files
Driver Detective will now complete the backup process by writing the files to the backup location.
Verifying the backup files
You can now use Windows Explorer to view your backup folder and verify your drivers have been backed up.
Another source of backup drivers
All the drivers you have downloaded are listed inside the Drivers HeadQuarters website.
To access them, go to the Driver Detective website and click on the Sign In link at the top right of the page. You can now sign in using your login details you received after registering Driver Detective.
If you click on the History tab it will take you to a page with a list of your previously downloaded drivers. Just click on the links if you need to download any of your drivers again.
It also lists your previous scan results further down the page so you can download drivers by clicking on those links, too.
