How do I restore a backup from the file browser?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Did you back up the driver before?  If yes, it is supposed to be in Restore. If not, we guess you need a new driver.

Please download https://cdn.iobit.com/dl/db/debug/DBInfoHelper.exe > double click to run this tool on the problem PC > click 'Save report to Desktop' > find db_info_YYMMDD.zip on your desktop > send us the zip file.

We will analyze the file and try our best to find a solution for you.

Sorry, I thought I'd get an email alert or something if this post got a response. I did not run the update through DriverBooster when this happened, it was a direct Nvidia download, otherwise it would have backed up up automatically. What I am showing in my screenshot was when the driver had been backed up by DB in the past. What I was asking for is a way to rstore that old backup for the C:\ProgramData\IObit\Driver Booster\Backups folder. If the application can't restore those, why take up space on the hard drive if they are useless?

I attached the zip you requested.

I had the PC packed up for moving so when I unpacked it started it up, it pulled this month's Windows Updates. None were for drivers but when it restarted the Nvidia driver was working. I created a regular Windows restore point (for what that's worth) and I'm running Driver Booster again. It says there's a Nvidia and PhysX update so I'm running that now. I'll update this after it is done.

Okay, so I have no idea how or why, but it is working fine now. I applied the latest Driver Booster driver it found and games are showing the proper settings and working.

I still would really like to know if there is a way to access the backups in the DB Explore Backups folder C:\ProgramData\IObit\Driver Booster\Backups when they don't show up in the app's list but are still on the drive.
