    NVIDIA Huge?

    I am running Vista Home Premium and just happened to look at my programmes file the other day and was surprised to see the NVIDIA size was 3.76GB and was downloaded only recently. I didn't do it so is it automatic? Do I need all this as I don't do any gaming or that sort of stuff. Can I get rid of some of this or do I need it all? My Graphic Card is GE Force 6150 LE whatever that means! I would be grateful for any help on this, thanks. Rob

    Hi,

    Is this folder on the root directory of "C"?
    i.e C:/Nvidia

    If it is then other than the current driver version all the directory contents can be deleted.

    Ok,

    Keep the 182.08 folder & delete the older one (181.20).

    What size is the folder now?

    As you can see the size has not really changed despite deleting the file and restarting the computer. Still 3.76 GB. Programme strip attached. Thanks. Rob

    Can you give a file location? I haVE 2 drivers and theyre only 600Meg together.

    The other thing to remember, tha "nvidia" driver also has all your motherboard drivers too, not just the video card.

    Hi,

    My driver folders are only 120MB each. So, what else is on that drive?

    The first image you posted is of folders on the drive (part of the drive contents) but the second (Numbers) image is of the full drive contents.

    Please exand the drive & post a full picture or list the directories on the drive. OK?

    The NVIDIA file is now only 88.5 mb but the programme list still shows the same gb's.
    The original file is dated 2009 but the programme listing says updated recently.

    Hi,

    Please explain why this looks like a drive icon & not the same as the folder icon in the other pictures.

    Are we only looking at part of the information? Please show an expanded vieiw of this drive or folder.

    Thank you
