You just want to back up the drivers--that is, those files that tell windows how to use the attached hardware? Don't bother. It's easier going to the hardware site(s) and download the drivers after reinstalling windows.

he's right, it's very difficult. if you want to try and salvage drivers: copy everything from \windows, windows\system, windows\sytem32, and windows\inf into one location (cd or slave hard-drive). mostly you want extensions .exe, .dll, .sys,
com, inf, hlp but there's no guarantees on that. More extensions seem to appear with every newer version of windows, so capture all if poss. With Xp, there might be more than i've listed, since i don't have Xp right now i can't say. Also a lot of stuff in (old versions) \windows\options\cabs, but again, I'm ignorant of new stuff.

What a bunch of nonsense.

Do you think the OP has been waiting around for 3 months for you to post in with an irrelevent, DUH! response?

Yeah, you've got to pay careful attention to the operating system 'credentials' and the 'various general and graphical textures' when installing windows'. I don't know what that means but it must be important. Oh, and the idea of using something called a 'backup' to restore your data? That never would have occurred to me.
