When you update the device drivers in your system via Windows Update or other sources, Windows still keeps a copy of your older versions of device driver packages. If your system is running fine with the latest drivers and don’t need to rollback the drivers, you can save some disk space by clearing the older, unused driver packages.
Delete Old Device Drivers Using Disk Cleanup
Click Start, type Disk Cleanup. Right-click Disk Cleanup from the results and click Run as Administrator
Select the system drive letter and click OK.
Select the checkbox for Device driver packages, and click OK.
This removes the older versions of drivers from the drivers package store.
