    • Cleanup old config when a new version runs the first time.
    • Strong sign the assembly so the config path is consistent.

    Release DriverStore Explorer v0.10.58 . lostindark/DriverStoreExplorer . GitHub

    The best use I have found for this utility when it comes to space saving is with Nvidia drivers, they have a nasty habit of keeping a copy in the Nvidia folder (560Mb) plus a copy in Driver store folder (560Mb) every time you upgrade, so using RAPR you can recover at least 1Gb of space (1.1Gb if you delete the RTX .dll which is pointless on a GTX card lower than a 1660). Using RAPR is less hassle than DDU if you are not having issues with the Nvidia driver other than it's space hogging attitude.

    Please be aware of a problem you might face using rapr to "Select Old Drivers" Automatically.

    There are some intel extensions that will be selected as they are installed from the same .inf file (iigd_ext.inf, marked in red in the following image). If you force delete them and reboot the system, within a few seconds Windows Update will reinstall them. Apparently, although earlier versions (the current one is marked in green), they need to be there and they will be reinstalled.
    To make a long story short, don't completely rely on the "Automatic" selection of the old drivers. Just go through them and select the old ones manually.
