Drivers are responsible for communication between PC hardware and software. Without drivers, communication will not happen. In the previous version of windows, it was not easy to take drivers backup as like windows 10.
In Windows XP and Windows 7, I used to use Pro utility to take drivers back up. You can easily take drivers backup in windows 10 using Powershell.
Step-by-Step Process to Take Windows 10 Drivers Backup Using Powershell:-
Step1:- Open the Powershell with administrative privilege. Click on the Start and Search “Powershell” and right-click on it and select “Run as administrator“.
And enter the below command to “view all installed drivers” on your Windows 10 PC.
Get-WindowsDriver -online -All
it will show you all installed drivers on your PC. As you see in below image, it’s showing the driver for “Network Infrastructure Devices”, VMware etc.
Now again enter the below command to take the backup.
Export-WindowsDriver -online -Destination E:DriverBackup
You command will be same, only Provide your Drive letter instead of E driver and provide your folder name, whatever you want’s.
It will take approve 5 minutes to complete your backup. Most of the time its size is above 400 MB, so make your drive have enough space for backup. That’s it.
