Driver Size in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository


  • This folder is 32gb with what looks like a LOT of duplicate files... why is this here and how to I reduce it to just what I need?

  • Hi Nacg,

    Microsoft recommend that you don't delete anything from this folder but you can use the built in folder cleanup functionality (this can be found in the folder properties).

  • What type of driver management are you using on your deployment server? Have you looked at the total control method? This limits the drivers being injected to only those needed by the model you are imaging.
