What is good free tool to backup all currently installed hardware drivers, or is there manual way to do it too? Also, simple way to restore backed up collection of drivers to fresh reinstalled system, if suggested tool doesn't support that functionallity.

I'm looking for solution on Windows Vista, all editions.



You can give DriverBackup! a shot. Free and Open Source.

Fast and user-friendly free tool for drivers's backup, restoration and removal with command line options, automatic restoration from CD\DVD and path formatting. DriverBackup! includes also an interactive command line builder.

Double Driver is pretty smart and free.
