Hi,

You can go one better : image your entire system using something like Macrium.

Just a note:
if you're wanting to back up drivers because you plan to update them, no need. Windows will give you the option of a driver rollback if the new driver fails. :)

Personally I wouldn't trust any "driver backup" software, you never know if it may have missed an important file or registry entry. Better idea would be to just save the installers for the drivers to a USB key or something, and replace what is saved if/when you update and keep the new installer.
