Cleanup drivers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have accumulated a lot of drivers in my Out-of-Box drivers and I would like to do some spring cleaning.

    I have a folder called Win PE x64 where i put all the drivers required for booting clients to deploy (especially the Net and Disk drivers)

    When i look in MDT i have dozen of different versions for the same drivers, is it safe to remove all but the newest?

  • I also do the same without issue. Unless you are supporting systems that the vendor them self no longer supports, that's about the only issue I could possibly see.

  • To keep it short and sweet - I am yet to see any implications. I routinely remove all drivers from my WinPE folder before importing latest vendor WinPE driver packages.
