Sadly, there is not way nor any special option to save, back and restore it in case you decide to format your Windows 10. Let’s see how to solve it thanks to a quick trick, a command available in the command prompt!

  2. Now, run the following command: dism /online /export-driver /destination:C:\Users\Your_Username\Your_Folder    make sure to change the destination path to one of your choice that addresses to a easy to find folder.
