Default [Released] DriverGrabber 2.0 - One Click Driver Backup (Works In PE Disks too!)

OK... you asked for it.... so here it is!!!

DriverGrabber 2.0 Beta 5

This is a One Click Driver Backup Solution.

Very simple to use...
Run the "DriverGrabber 2.0.exe" and watch it Grab all of the drivers from your system and place them into a "Drivers" folder!

It now even grabs drivers that are no longer in use... For instance... a Printer Driver that is no longer physically connected to your system while you perform a backup.

Also... you can now use DriverGrabber on a Windows PE disk like LiveXP! It auto detects if it is being executed in a PE environment... it will attempt to auto detect the Windows Drive you wish to backup as well.


Download:
DriverGrabber 2.0


Beta 5:
Fixed - A few bugs in the code causing DriverGrabber to fail finding the correct path to grab some driver files.
Changed - DriverSearch is now set to Off by default. If anyone has issues with backups I suggest they try to turn DriveSearch on and then post their log on the forum so I can make sure their drivers are properly backed up in a future release of DriverGrabber. We are still in Beta... and I'd like to have DriverGrabber functioning as well as I can without the need for DriveSearch.


Please test this version of DriverGrabber out and report back any issues. When reporting issues please try to post your DriverGrabber.log file to help narrow down a problem. If you get a "Not Found!" error on a specific file that can not be grabbed... please run a search on your entire system to verify the file even exists anywhere on your computer.

As far as I can tell, it worked perfectly. I did it before uninstalling all my USB drives as suggested in this thread: http://www.technibble.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38384

One note: I have the start menu on the top of the screen. Since your program sticks to the top of the screen, the very top part was cut off and I couldn't move it down. Very minor issue, but may want to default the program to the middle of the screen instead of the top.

Thanks again!
