Have you ever formatted your hard drive and installed a fresh copy of Windows? I know I have several times. Everyone will have to go through that process from time to time and it can be quite a hassle. Well, today, I have a free download for you that will save you a ton of time the next time you need to reinstall Windows. The program is called DriverMax and it will eliminate some of your worst headaches!
DriverMax does something that I have never seen before. It can create an archive of all your device drivers. By doing that, you don’t have to worry about hunting down disks and downloads for all of the hardware on your computer. You simply run DriverMax, click Export Drivers, select the drivers you want to backup and then let it work its magic. DriverMax will save all of those hard to find device drivers for you in one folder. You can then store them on a flash drive or burn them to a disk so that you will never have to search for them again!
Then after you format and reinstall Windows, simply insert the disk or flash drive that holds your drivers. You can then tell your computer to look on the flash drive or CD for the missing drivers. If you want to make it even easier on yourself, you can reinstall DriverMax on your computer after you’re done and have it install the drivers for you. After installing DriverMax, simply click Import and tell it where to locate the drivers file. It will then handle the rest!
I love this program and I only wish I would have found it sooner. It would have saved me so much time!
