Closed What Folder Holds Active Drivers? Tags: Windows 7 Drivers System32 Last response: November 16, 2011 1:01 AM in Windows 7 Share garfox November 11, 2011 7:18:17 PM I am tracking down older driver that was installed by windows 7. I need to know which folder holds the active drivers in win 7... Is it /system32/drivers, or one of the other "driver store" or "repository" folders? Thanks - gotta chase a crashed folder because updated drivers are not working. Thanks much.

Thanks but system crashed and had to be re-installed--I think all the system restore points are lost. I do have some old data saved in one folder but I haven't figured out to research system restore files yet.
