Driver Help

Is there any one place on my PC that all drivers are located? I want to do a Clean Install and would like to save my Drivers in case I need them. Thanks

Hey Jim,

Sorry, but drivers would need to be reinstalled after a clean install.

I like to keep the installation files for them saved on a data drive to have handy as needed. I just keep them updated from the device manufacturer driver download page every so often.

I was asking if there are in one place in my PC so that I can save them or are they spread out in different places? I am mainly concerned about my Wifi drivers.

Yeah, drivers are not in just one place. They are integrated in to many different locations and the registry to be able to simply save them as a backup.

All you can do is save the driver installation file to have handy to reinstall.
