    This thing is so good that it deserves a space here at MDL.
    The best tool to install drivers out there imho.
    Malware free.
    PUPs free.

    Do not confuse it vs. its Russian counterpart. (For the record, I got nothing vs. Russians).

    thanks :) SDIO is better than SDI, not only bcoz it is clean but also bcoz its driver matching system is different and better than sdi (tested both in some systems).

    Yep, SDIO is the best in terms of automated driver installs. I used to use it in my WDS/MDT back in the day. Saved a ton of time.

    What's the difference between this one and the OG SDI?

    At first sight it does not make sense I agree but better ask the developer what to do in this case...

    Just for the record....

    I used this software and "updated" some drivers... and then was very happy I had created a system restore point, as the wireless mouse stopped working.

    Hi. I've always used Snappy Driver Installer (I believe this is the russian version) and never seemed to have any issue with it. Is it "bad" ? Does it have any malware I'm not aware of ? And why are those softwares' names so similar ? Like, is one the fork of the other ?
    I'm just trying to understand the deal here.

    Edit: typo

    (Most likelyl nothing to do with this build), but several years ago, particular had caused my clients very expensive laptop to burn mobo (repair has not been viable), there was (possibly, with no bad intensions) included within driver package malware, that caused vurneability- potential pc takeover injection - aka back door.
    Having tested on several machines and had unsuccessful driver configurations, also several security issues- never even tested it again, hence:
    Possibly all negative issues has been solved...

    Some comments from the developer Glenn Delahoy regard the use of SDIo or when you encounter a "glitch" like a not working mouse and/or keyboard after updating drivers. I think they're very important:
