    do you mean store an image of your system in cloud storage??

    you would do better to use acronis and another drive for a full system image.

    i use online storage for just my data, i have my drivers there also and on a flash drive ready to install when i do a fresh install of xp

    you can download your drivers and save to a flash drive no need to lose them

    Don't you keep the driver installation CDs that come with your devices?
