Windows 7: I want to Backup my Drivers - advice please

I want to Backup my Drivers - advice please

Hello folks, I am up and running with Windows 7.
All seems to be alright.
Now I want to Backup my Drivers.

What is the favourite app to use.
I just want to backup the drivers.
I don't want to have to use the backup software to Restore a driver.

Needless to say, I have System Restore points and Acronis backups of full system and data.
I am interested in just the Drivers.
And want to use only tried and tested apps.

Backing up an installed driver is not of much use. You need the installation .exe. If you still have those, you just copy or move the folders to a drive of your choice. What, in fact, are you trying to accomplish?
