  • Hey, I have been using this program for a while and its pretty good, but I have several suggestions:
    – Need an option to backup drivers in normal folders, not in zip.
    – The program should work without internet connection. I had backed up drivers in one computer but without internet connection and even when I selected the back up folder the program didnt detect that those drivers were for that computer.
    – Include the version number in the download installer.
    – Actually would be nice that the program behaves like an one time use, not preconfigured to be in the tray and start with windows, etc. Though I suppose that this is a decision of yours and wont be changed, just saying.

    Thanks you

    • Hi anon,
      Thank your for your suggestions.
      In order to manage the files conveniently, the better form is ZIP;
      As to the backup and restore option, it should work without internet connection. However, did you ever update/downgrade the OS before and after backup, and is it the same computer that will use the backup to restore?
      Before download, you can choose the version to download. So you can check the version here.
      And you can change the preconfiguration from settings. Just uncheck the options that you don’t want the program to behave.

      Thank you for using DriveTheLife.
