Location of Drivers folder in Windows 7

June 13, 2012

I was looking to save the drivers out of a machine that would not boot. I needed to know which folder to backup in order to save all system drivers, thanks to Vijay’s post I was able to save 30-60 mins worth of work finding Display, Printers, and most importanly, NIC drivers.. You just make a backup of this folder, transfer it to the newly imaged HD (in my case) and point to it when updating your drivers in Computer Management.

The location of the driver store is – C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore
