Do I assume correctly that PSI will not locate and copy all current drivers for backup?

I am planning on doing a clean install to Win7 64 (from Win7 32 bit) and would like to make the job as easy as possible by having a handy file of all device drivers to access.

If not, then do I assume that DriverMax is the right way to go?

You are right, because the PSI is not a backup utility. You would only be informed about vulnerable driver, something I have personally never heard of. So perhaps DriverMax can be used for that purpose... but I don't know that program. Anyone else out there who do?? :-)

Driver updates are always a personal choice but U may wish to note this thread.

I agree 100% with "if it ain't broke , don't fix it" - especially for drivers .
Having said that I have checked out several of the software available , but always stopped at the "buy now" demand to finish the job .
Driver Max would probably be my choice & is "free" , if you register , & seems to have a good "back up" system .
I have only once changed/updated a driver ; it was for my graphics & offered by the supplier.
