Windows 7, Windows 8 driverstore

Posted by on 07. J 2013 in Blog

Windows has a driverstore where it stores it’s drivers it’s either downloaded from Windows Update or installed manually from e.g. a users usb-drive.


This is lovely to know! Cause the files in that repository is all you need for a working driverpackage (no need to use stuff like Driver Genius or other utilities to extract drivers, which often fails in my experience).

Update 2019-01-10
This driverstore-location has probably been around since Windows Vista, and is also present in the newest Windows 10-build
