How to Back Up a Mac. This wikiHow teaches you how to back up the data and files on your Mac to an external hard drive and/or Apple's cloud-based storage service, iCloud. Connect your Mac to a formatted external hard drive.

Pros

It backs up the drivers and rather quickly.

Cons

It doesn't offer a feature to re-install the drivers which pretty much defeats the purpose of backing up the drivers in the first place.

Summary

If you just need the drivers for backup purposes then it is worth it but if you are looking to quickly back up drivers for quickly re-install them for a OS reload then look somewhere else.

'I did not use it.'

'I did not use it.'

Pros

Easily downloaded.

Cons

This insists on installing itself as an application first. When 'rescuing' drivers from an unstable system, a new installation is the last thing I want.

Summary

I found a file called 'double driver' which runs WITHOUT installation and copies all your drivers into a directory structured archive so that they can be copied off and reinstalled later.

Pros

I gave not tried to restore drivers from this backup yet, Its not done with this software, probably need to do them manually

Cons

I like it. Easy, works as advertised. Chances are, if you don't know enough to use it, you won't know you could use it and make your life easier.

'Simple and easy, with no hand holding'

'Simple and easy, with no hand holding'

Pros

Does what I expected and needed, but with little documentation. As long as you know a bit, it does what is needed.

Cons

There needs to be a bit of an explanation of how it works, especially for non-expert users.

Best Backup For Macs

Summary

I like it. Easy, works as advertised. Chances are, if you don't know enough to use it, you won't know you could use it and make your life easier.

Pros

Quick and easy to save driver configuration

Cons

No instructions to unzip correctly. You may need to click the read file before unzipping.

Summary

I downloaded it because I did not read the review correctly, I thought it would scan and suggest what drivers to install. It did not...It did as it was supposed to do, scanned my drivers and listed them. I save the file. Then I proceeded to download DriverHQ which I had used years ago; I clicked scan, then chose to download an ATI driver, and my monitor went haywire. No matter what driver I downloaded from ATI, it wouldn't work. I remembered that I had backed up the driver, went into my control panel and restored the driver. I then uninstalled DriverHQ!

'Shows all your drivers to backup, only 2 choices. Easy'

'Shows all your drivers to backup, only 2 choices. Easy'

Pros

Xbox One Controller Driver For Mac

So simple, anyone can do it.

Paragon Driver For Mac

Cons

None that I could find

Summary

Best driver backup software i've found

Pros

I was really at my tech capabilities' end when I had to reformat my hard drive. I downloaded this program, ran it and saved the results on a flash drive. When format was done, the backed-up drivers were easy to reinstall.

Cons

None that I found, but I wasn't sure what I was doing.

'Not for the inexperienced'

'Not for the inexperienced'

Pros

Finds dozens of possible choices for driver downloads

Cons

Gives NO CLUE WHATSOEVER as to which of the dozens of driver choices would be for you. This appears to be a P2P site which would update more viruses than drivers.

Summary

Downloaded, installed and sampled this application on at least a couple of occasions and was completely lost as to which of the available driver downloads would be appropriate for my system. One would just be much better off by going to the manufacturer's site for driver updates.
I am disappointed that there is a not ZERO star rating
