Pull Drivers before reformat

I would like to know if it is possible to retrieve, or pull, or drivers off of my machine (make a copy of) for my Dell XPS m1330. It was really difficult finding all the drivers (originally a Vista machine) and I don't want to go hunting again - want to have them ready.
Is there an app I can use that'll pull them for me?

Hi mythology8,

Try using DriverMax.
I usually just download the driver for the network interface be it wired or wireless from dells website, install the new operating system, install the network driver, and then grab the rest of them from dell.  This way you know you have the newest drivers available.  http://support.dell.com should have all the drivers you need.  just plug in your service tag.  If you've already tried that and cant find vista drivers, then I second skywalkers advice, drivermax should work.

It was originally Vista, they have XP on it now.
They are hunting for XP Drivers (or) A way to get the drivers of the system before install.

If you get the drivers (Either from the link that I provided above of from the info from skywalker39
Do yourself a favor, and burn then to a CD and store it somewhere safe.

Good Luck
