network-printerprinterwindows 7windows 8windows xp

As a network administrator I sometimes have to do a clean windows install on a system and I want to know if there is a way to backup up printers driver that were installed in on old version of windows (some of them are network printers)?

Best Answer

I believe what you need is Microsoft Print Migrator.

You can export print queues, printer settings, printer ports, and language monitors, and then import them on another print server running a Windows operating system. This is an efficient way to consolidate multiple print servers or replace an older print server.


note: I have used this tool in the past and found it effective.
