Work with a toolset for device driver backup and management on PC. View information such as the installed hardware, the associated driver packages, and relevant settings. Save and store the extracted data for updating, removal, and restoration after a corresponding command.

To start updating drivers, you just need to select the operating system of your computer. In a few seconds a list of outdated drivers is displayed together with basic information about each of them. You can choose to download the latest version of the selected driver or to hide it till another edition is released. Before starting the updating process, it is advisable to save copies of the existing drivers to prevent the unpleasant situation of installing badly working or incompatible updates. The back up feature allows you to save your drivers to a ZIP folder or to an executable file. What's more, you can select the compression level (that is low, medium, or high), depending on how much space you want to save on your hard drives.

The program also has the function of detecting devices that don't have any driver installed. This feature is of great help when the original driver is missing, and you don't know the manufacturer or the class to which it belongs. In addition, the program helps you uninstall specific drivers; this option, as well as most of the features mentioned above, is available only after registration. more

We use this product and i would warn people today not to. We get zip code and tax data using ZipProduct Manager and just discovered a very disturbing fact, the data has many errors. 1 town is listed in 3 counties with different tax data. on FIPS i check should have 17 towns associated with it yet in the CCH data i found only 10 and 3 of them were completely wrong.

Driver Magician Lite lacks frills and showmanship, but the simple layout makes backing up your device drivers much easier than pulling a rabbit out of a hat.

The quick install and small memory footprint would lead you to hope that the rest of the program runs the same way. That's no sleight-of-hand: Backing up every driver on my computer, from Bluetooth and tablet controllers to Intel chip sets, took less than five minutes. Users can select drivers individually or hit the Select All button at the bottom of the spreadsheet-style layout. Hitting the Start Backup button opens a directory window, so you can choose where the drivers will be saved to, and then another click begins the process.

We recommend creating a designated folder for backing up your drivers, since Driver Magician will mimic your computer's folder tree and save each driver to an appropriate folder. Saving those to your desktop would be harder to clean up than splaying a deck of cards across a stage. It doesn't do much else. If you need to use the drivers it's backed up for you, you'll need to install them yourself. However, you'll be hard-pressed to find such a useful tool that's as easy to use as this, and that's no trick... Yahoo Yahoo Yahoo
