Backup and restore installed drivers with Double Driver

Previously we wrote about a software called Driver Magician that can extract installed device drivers, backup them and restore whenever required. Double Driver is another free utility that can backup your drivers.

One of the main reasons why you would want to collect installed drivers is if you don’t have the Driver CD that came with the computer or they are unavailable online. This comes in quite handy if you purchased a computer and want to backup the initial set of drivers. This is especially useful for notebook computers as it’s usually difficult to find drivers for hardware installed in a notebook, if the operating system has to be setup again.

Double Driver analyzes your system and lists all device drivers installed with details such as version, date, provider, etc. It then allows the user to select the drivers they want to backup. Backed up drivers can be easily restored at a later point.

Features

  • List, save, and print drivers details
  • Backup drivers from current Windows
  • Backup drivers from non-live/non-booting Windows
  • Backup drivers to structured folders, compressed (zipped) folder, and self-extracting capability
  • Restore drivers from previous backup
  • Available in GUI and CLI application
  • Portable

In comparison, Driver Magician offers some extra functionality such as it can identify unknown devices by querying an online database, update drivers and consolidate all drivers into a single auto-setup package.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
