I tried it and it does not compare to IcemanND's Driver Backup... It wants to back up everything and theres no way to tell it to only back up the non Microsoft Drivers...

@IcemanND

Great idea with great potential. I really like the idea of such a tool.

I tried this tool a while back. I tested it on a Dell Latitude D410 notebook and selected to backup ALL non-Microsoft drivers. I thought it hung, so I aborted it and never tried it again

Just now I just gave it another try, using the same system but this time I backed up only one driver.

The first driver I ask it to backup took over 5 minutes just to backup 3 tiny files:

What's taking so long? :w00t:

there's a utility called double driver, it's freeware, extremely effective and used by the PE community for some time. It's my personal choice anyway. :yes:

I am sure there are alot of similar programs out there. I personally use Driver Genius Professional for the last few years.

It is no doubt the best on the market. It can backup, backup to zip, backup to self-extracting EXE, backup to auto-install EXE, search, download and update new drivers, etc, etc, etc, It's only US30 for the Pro - I think it's well worth it.

But I am constantly looking for one that is good, stable, AND FREE FOR COMMERCIAL use (for work really). So far I have yet to find such a thing. Sorry, Double Driver is light years away...

Double driver misses a lot of files.
Driver genius isn't free for the full version, and I've had the free version miss files.

Mine is free for anyone to use, and though it may still have a few bugs, it will pull all of the files for a driver that it finds.

I'm currently working on an updated version which is faster. The file search is the slowest part of the application and I've managed to narrow the searches and speed them up but there are still a few issues before I release it for general consumption.

Using driverbackup79
Running Win2k sp4

Hit scan machine and got;

d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
dell p991
nvidia geforce2 gts/geforce2 pro
via bus master ide controller
via cpu to agp controller
via standard cpu to pci bridge
win2000 promise ultra 100 ide controller(pdc20265)

Hit backup drivers and got;

backup path: c:\driverbackup
working folder: c:\docume~1\admini~1\locals~1\temp
listbox line: d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
driver caption: d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
locating drivers for d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
creating folder: c:\driverbackup\d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
oem10.inf

Then it stops with an internet explorer script error.

!An error has occured in the script on this page.

line: 2029
char: 2
error: could not complete the operation due to error 80041017
code: 0
url: file://c:\documents and settings\administrator\local
settings\application data\compiledScriptHTA

Happens every time backing up 1 driver, several, or all.
I'm hoping the next version will fix it. :)

Never been tested with W2k, at least to my knowledge.
v2 should work with 2k, hope to release it by the end of the week.

I too am looking forward to this working in Windows 2000. Looks like a great tool. And maybe this thread should be made "sticky"?

You want to replace any \ with \\ in your code because \ refers to a command

Version 2 which is almost complete has been completely rewritten from beginning to end. I hope to have it finalized and ready for alpha testing by the end of the first week of January.

Are you using Windows 2000? If so, that's why.

Do you have the new version ready soon, since this one won't work in Finnish Windows XP.
