    Snappy Driver Installer Origin urgent questions

    After reading this article MakeUseOf sent me by email, I decided to give Snappy Driver Installer Origin v1.12.9 a try. Since it's a portable version, I thought it was safe to use it. So I launched it and it showed a list with six drivers I suppose need updates (see first image below), and it started downloading stuff right away, without any other action from me.

    Then I opened a dialog box that has a list with a lot more drivers, and all of its items are listed as "Missing":

    The urgent questions are:

    - Why is it listing all that "missing" stuff?

    - Why all that stuff is 33.1 GB in size?

    The second screenshot, I think, relates to driver packs.

    As you will have noted, you can either download just the indices (lists of drivers available) or the whole set of driver packs SDI has available. That's all driver packs for all PCs everywhere.

    You probably don't really want the latter. That's for e.g. maintenance folk dealing with multiple PCs.
    You acan see there are 2 versions:

    I.e. missing there does not equal drivers your instance of Windows is lacking.
