    How do you clean the driver store?

    Hi all long time no post.

    Been looking at my C drive (Pro 64 bit) and under RecoveryImage folder there is a Drivers folder containing 25gb of files, how to clean this up seems rather excessive?

    These articles seem to have no effect on the RecoveryImage/Drivers folder.

    Do not use Windows recovery, but 3rd party software.

    I don't I use Reflect. I don't think this has anything to do with drive recovery.

    I do not have that folder. Have you upgraded 10 or used the insider version before?
    It looks like it is a way to reload a previous installation when the current one fails.
    People say, they removed without problems, but it is suggested to backup it anyway.
