  3. Note: It is highly recommended to backup existing drivers before downloading and installing new drivers. This is to ensure that you have a complete set of existing drivers before you make any changes to your system. Further, having these drivers may come in handy should you need them for another computer.

By default, backed up drivers are automatically stored here:

  • For Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\DriverFinder\Backup

  • For Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\DriverFinder\Backup

To change backup location, please see article titled "Changing Driver Backup Location in DriverFinder".

To restore backed up drivers, please see the article titled “Restoring Drivers in DriverFinder”.

To remove backed up drivers, please see the article titled “Deleting Backed Up Drivers in DriverFinder”.
