    That is NOT what I use it for!
    I only use it when driver installation is some s**t .exe routine when 100+ Mb is downloaded for 1 Mb worth of driver files
    And some exe driver files can not be easily extracted

    So ConfigMgr Driver Grabber gets just the bits that are needed, plain & simple

    I'm not saying your way is wrong.

    Just there is no difference from using your tool and copying the folder I'm talking about, simply what your utility does was already done by windows itself when the driver was installed.

    Say, you want an ATI driver, you will find just the driver package itself, no installer, no codecs no freacking utilities, and so on...

    It is NOT my utility. Just something that I use on regular basis!
    And the name gives it away, used for ConfigMgr

    Sure. You din't write the utility, and I didn't invent the directory nor the file manager. :D

    "Yours"/"mine" was just a quick way to describe my approach v.s. your approach.
