Btw driver backup and restore features are available without registration. Any download options require (free) email registration.

Driver Max will require you to share the drivers on your system with the 'community' that is upload them to their servers.

To download more than 2 drivers a day, you need pro.
Handy tool for driver backups, but I'm going to look for an alternative that is completely free.

To sum up the comments on the website referenced by BosseWeb (Btw these comments date back to 2008.):

  • Users reported that Driver Max would install drivers for the wrong Windows version (e.g. Vista drivers on XP)
  • After installing drivers the PC would become unstable or slow
  • One user claimed that he received a phishing email after registering his email on the Driver Max homepage

I don't know how well it works, but one thing I can tell for sure is that the free version is really annoying: you need to create an account, you get nag screens all over the place, as "duri" said limited to 2 drivers per day and the interface is just totally counter intuitive. That's not called free software but "nag" software.

I can definitely not recommend it for anyone unless you buy the pro version.

Great piece of software! Probably still the best one in the market when comes to updating drivers.

There's one catch though. Now it has a limitation to 2 driver downloads per day. It's bit irritating.

Register then you can easily check update for newer version of your driver ^^

I like this! Better interface then RadarSync and feels a bit better. The only complaint was that you had to register to get a code. But it was worth it.
