Double Driver is a free standalone tool that allows you to backup and restore device drivers. This is useful if you have computers with pre-installed Windows and no driver disk, and want to re-install the operating system. Or perhaps you want to transfer a driver from one computer to another.

Double Driver first scans the computer and then gives you an overview of all installed device drivers. You can then select all Microsoft or third party drivers. It is also possible to select only single drivers. The tool then allows you to backup the drivers either in structured folders, in a zipped folder, or in a self-executable file. The latter enables you to import selected device drivers on another machine with just a mouse click. Double Driver can also save and print the list of all drivers. I tested Double Driver 3.0.0.
A comparable tool is DriverMax, which has some additional features, such as online driver update or the identification of unknown hardware. However, if you want to use these additional features, you have to register the tool, which is not free.
