During the course of a PC life time, at one time or the other, most of us encounter situations where we have to re-install our operating system for some technical reasons. After re-installing the operating system, its very imperative to re-install all the hardware specific drivers to bring back the system to the fully functional mode. Installing the drivers may not be an easy task, as it involves inserting multiple compact disk drives, one for each of the hardware types. In case, if you have lost the driver cd/software for a specific hardware, then finding a suitable one can be a much more daunting task. So, if we make a habit of backing up all the available drivers before even un-installing the operating system, we can avoid all the troubles that we have to face after re-installing the operating system. This is where a software called DriverMax comes in handy.
