PC Spring Cleaning: Old Nvidia Drivers

Alright Windows Nvidia users it is time for a little spring cleaning. I say Windows users because this guide refers to Nvidia directories in Windows and need not apply to Linux users.

Old display drivers can be taking up a lot of space on your HDDs and SSDs. I removed about 2.4GB worth of old drivers about a month ago on my PC so I figured I’d share the info with you guys and gals.

Now if you do a clean install every time you install a new driver you won’t have this issue, but for those who don’t here is how to save some space.

1: Navigate to C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation

2: Delete everything in the “Installer2” folder but not the folder itself.
