One of the preliminary steps that must be done before start formatting computer, is to support all drivers, in anticipation that is not possible to download and reinstall them. To do this, there are some programs that will help us to a greater or lesser extent to do so.
We will refer to the Double Driver, as it is one of the easiest to use. It is also portable so you can take it on a USB and restore the drivers of computers of friends or relatives.
Once launched the Double Driver executable, you can wait that the program to perform a search of all the drivers present in the computer, using the option Scan Current System. When finished, its will give a list of drivers where those marks are most important, generally those drivers are not of Microsoft.
The program also gives the possibility to search for drivers of other operating system that is installed next to the main (Scan Other System). So if you have Windows 7 and Windows 8, for example, can support both OS drivers.
As soon as the search was finished, we will find details in a folder, located on any device. We may also store them in a compressed ZIP file or the program will make an executable of all drivers.
When restoring the drivers, we will have to run DoubleDriver again within the brand new Windows. The Restore option will allow us to restore the drivers to their original locations.
