This process can be performed by two ways: backing up system image with all the drivers installed and working, or by installation package driver backup. Download smart driver backup tool firstly and then use one of two ways described below.

The Most Convenient Method: Backup an Entire System Image

The first way, as said before, is a most useful method. To perform it using Handy Backup just select the Disk Image plug-in as the data source in the task configuration step. Then select your system disk, and an entire image of your system containing all the drivers used will being backed up.

The Backup Bushi-do: Using the Driver Backup Tool for Backing up Single Drivers

The second way is used often as a sort of smart driver backup technique. To apply it, you must know all the extensions formats used in the particular driver systems; the most common set consists of “*.dll”, “*.drv”, “*.bin” and sometimes of “*.exe” file masks. Any single driver backup can consist from these or any other formats in any combination, so this method requires some knowledge and skill from users.

More reasonable tasks that can use this method are backing up the installation package using the drivers backup software. Just select a directory or device containing all the files needed to install the driver and add it to backup data set.

Both of these methods uses the Computer plug-in for working with particular files and folders, treating driver backup data as common files with appropriate extension masks. How the drivers backup is picked up is up to the user choice, completely.
