Help me find a driver backup application that can be scripted to run without prompting...

I am looking for an application that can backup and restore hardware drivers on a Windows-based PC. Much like this program: http://www.driver-soft.com/

The catch: I need it to be able to be run unattended or run as part of a batch script. Although it would be acceptable to give a prompt when there is an error, etc.

I am looking for a way to bundle this functionality into a script that will prepare a PC for OS re-installation and then restore all needed files, etc. after re-installation.

Free or pay-for are both acceptable.

The Driver Soft user guide says the program can be invoked on the command line. I'm not on Windows right now, so I can't tell if that runs it silently or not.

You are right! Somehow I did not catch that... (sigh)

If anyone knows any other programs with this functionality, I would still like to hear about them.

Thanks

Did you check GiveawayOfTheDay.com? They've got a driver backup program just today, but you've only got an hour or two left to still get the full registered version for free..
