I've got a new (well, used) laptop. I wish to format and reinstall the windows OS on it. On the machine I've got several drivers which I would like to transport to the new machine, but I don't have the original drivers CD's.

Is there a (FREE) software that can backup my drivers, and then later let me reinstall them on the new windows installation?

Yes, there exists specialized software for tasks just like that. DriverMax being one of an examples (but "google: backup drivers" reveals more).

I have not used it, so alas, I cannot tell how well it performs.

I should have added the word free on my question. Thanks. – Tal Galili Jun 12 '10 at 23:12
DriverMax is an excellent program (mostly), and it is free. I used it successfully though two reinstalls on two different machines. it works! :) – studiohack Jun 13 '10 at 1:27
