    Hello @MaloK,

    It does not apply to portable devices . . .

    I always treat these devices (printers / scanners / faxes) independently.
    Sorry, I am a bit confused.

    Are you saying that Printers, Scanners, Faxes, Mobiles, External HDD's, External SSD's, USB Controller etc, DO need to be plugged in/attached?

    Standard removable storage is ok,

    You might get things removed if your iphone is not connected if you are using Itunes and other software drivers will be removed, like Virtual DVD drivers etc...

    At some point it is not bad to run it because it removes a lot of superseded drivers, But it's worthless on new installations or machines that have not upgraded much.

    I most of the time use it before doing a backup of vital drivers from a machine I'm going to erase.

    I use it a lot in corp environment and have never had much problem with it.
