Driver easy software is a light-weighted Microsoft Windows software that lets you download and install drivers, find drivers for Obsolete Hardware, update out-of-date drivers, backup drivers for future use and roll back drivers for when window fails as a result of new driver installation.
One amazing thing about the app is that it works with older versions of Windows and automatically creates a system restore point on each driver’s install.
The app is so useful that we got it featured in our tips on how to get Android ADB drivers for Android phones, tablets and PDA(s).
Why Driver Easy Software
If you are a computer science student or works with a computer maintenance firm, you will agree with me that driving a computer is one time-tasking activity that can even put you out of job when ignored.
Nothing consumes time than driving an old computer machine with obsolete hardware and bad DVD-ROM drive, it makes one feel like dumping the machine in a public trash can.

I can still recall the several times I had to sleep in a cyber-cafe (back in days) in search of compatible drivers to use for such machines after formatting them with newer versions of Window.
The driver easy app really saved me the stress as I no longer keep a long catalog of all-in-one driver DVD packages that fails after a few uses.
In few sentences, we are going to outline some of the features of driver easy software that makes it one of the few universal driver updater app that really works.
This is very useful for areas with poor internet service.
The feature lets you scan the computer for missing drivers, out-of-date drivers and necessary utility drivers which can then be saved to an external storage media such as USB pen drive, external HDD and memory cards.
The storage media will now be connected to a PC with internet access and the driver scan carried out using the offline file saved earlier on.
Free to Download! Free to Use!
Even a free user can enjoy the fundamental features of driver easy software without the usual annoying ads (with other apps) and obvious restrictions.
I used the free version of the app for years before opting to their premium subscription without experiencing negative issues of any kind.
Drives lots of Machines
Hardly have I had a missed hit with the driver easy app. I have had successes with it even on older machines running the Microsoft XP operating system (OS).
The software claims to have a huge database of more than eight million (8,000,000) drivers which seems very legit from my point of view.
The huge driver’s database is also updated daily to include improved versions and more stable file for obsolete hardware.
Driver easy software lets you backup active drivers which can be very handy for computers with a damaged OS recovery drive.
The saved drivers can be used after formatting your machine or when installing drivers for a similar PC with same configuration as yours.
The driver restore feature complements this tool to make it a must-have utility app for driving computer machines.
Driver easy lets you roll-back drivers, remove older drivers for upgraded hardware, fix driver issues and provides update for out-of-date drivers.
It works flawlessly with all modern Microsoft windows operating system (OS) and lets you drive both brand new devices and old devices that the manufacturers don’t support anymore.
It is truly a good enough utility app for users and technicians alike.
Our Review and Verdict
So far, we are fully satisfied with the driver easy software and can easily recommend it as a reliable driver updater app.
Support for both 32bit and 64bit machines is a vote up for the driver easy app and the automatic creation of system restore point before driver install is another plus for Easeware Technologies (the makers of the driver easy software).
The few areas we are dis-satisfied with is the inability to resume download for interrupted driver downloads (most of the times) and the meager download speed that comes with the free version.
How to Use?
As already stated, the driver easy software is a Windows software that’s 100% compatible with Microsoft Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, XP, Vista; 32bit/64bit and works with very small system requirements.
To use the app, you’ll need download a stable version from https://www.drivereasy.com or opt to their no-download online driver scanner here and follow the on-screen instruction to complete the installation/driver update.
