Driver Magician is an easy-to-use and powerful device driver backup, restoration, update and removal software in Windows operation system. For those that don’t know what drivers are: In computing, a device driver or software driver is a computer program allowing higher-level computer programs to interact with a hardware device. They are an absolute must on every computer or else nothing would work.
Driver Magician identifies all the hardware in the system, extracts their associated drivers from the hard disk and backs them up to a location of your choice. Then when you format and reinstall/upgrade your operating system, you can restore all the saved drivers just as if you had the original driver diskettes in your hands. After one system reboot, all hardware in your computer works well. Moreover, it can back up and restore more items such as My Documents folder, Desktop, Registry, Internet Explorer favorite folder, data files of Outlook and Outlook Expres
What’s more, Driver Magician has a built in database of the latest drivers with the ability to go to the Internet to receive the driver updates. It saves lots of time to find the correct drivers and mature drivers will obviously increase the performance of hardware. If there are unknown devices in your PC, Driver Magician helps you detect them easily and quickly with its built in hardware identifier database.
Driver Magician makes it very easy to backup, restore and update drivers in Windows. However, I feel Driver Magician is a bit overpriced ($29.95). The lite version of Driver Magician is available as a free download, but it comes with very few features.
