With Radarsync DriverBackup 2012, installing and updating drivers is no longer a cringe-worthy moment. You can now safely backup all of your device drivers in a couple of clicks. DriverBackup will run a complete scan for everything it can find: sound, video, network, wireless, printers, etc. Then it will create a restore point. You can backup manually or set a schedule for when you want it to run automatically. One thing we do recommend to do is to turn off auto-backup on Windows start. We didn't find the option to create a backup every time you boot up your computer that useful. Nobody should be updating their drivers on a daily basis. It does a more thorough job than most other driver backup programs out there by saving every set of drivers it finds, even when you might just be interested in a particular set such as sound.

Restoration itself is a hassle free process. Choose the point you wish to restore and let the software do the rest. If you do multiple backups, be careful in your selection as RD'12 method of time-stamping is not the best method for easy record keeping. We were also able to restore some difficult Nvidia Video drivers, which are not the most user-friendly drivers out there.

The application will also notify you if it finds any driver updates. However, this will require you upgrade to RadarSync's PC Updater. Even though the software does not make any claim about updates, we felt it would have been nice to include this feature as DriverBackup 2012 is a paid product. If you're just looking for a mess-free solution to backing up drivers or even a little insurance against Murphy's Law when updating, RadarSync DriverBackup 2012 might be what you're looking for.

Developer's Description

RadarSync DriverBackup helps you correctly backup and restore PC drivers.

Your computer could suffer a system crash or failure at any time. You may need to reinstall Windows or reformat your PC. When that happens, you risk not having having all necessary device drivers you need to get your computer up and running again. The result can range from annoying (can't run favorite games) to catastrophic (no internet!). Unless you have a backup of your device drivers, and an easy way to install that backup, you will be stuck searching the manufacturer website for drivers which, for PCs even a couple years old, may no longer be available. Using RadarSync DriverBackup ensures you against these problems.

  • Automatically creates a back up of your PC drivers. The backup is saved as a .zip file on the hard drive that can downloaded and saved on an external storage device.
  • If you suffer system crashes, failures, or need to reformat your PC, the driver backup file is always available to fully restore the computer to working order.
  • DriverBackup's Restore function seamlessly accesses saved Backup files and installs the necessary drivers on demand.
