    Exclamation My Graphics Driver is freaking me out !!

    I've updated my graphics drivers via Windows Update & just got eye on the size the size it showing is 1.19GB (Check the image). Is it possible that a driver can take so much space ??

    Even my Win 7 installation shows the size as 1.19 GB, but took hardly 2-3 minutes to install from windows update.
    Can anyone imagine the download speed ?

    It doubtful that the driver really takes that much space. Maybe driver installation supplies wrong size information.

    I don't have Intel Graphics device anywhere in my machines, but perhaps you could see if there is "EstimatedSize" property for that installation entry, and if true, perhaps by removing it Windows would come up with a different size, as suggested in this article - How does Add/Remove Programs get the size and other information?

    + 1 here. Just noticed it on Windows 7 RTM. Isn't the driver in beta stage??

    The Driver Update was available via Windows Update. so, there is no possible chance of being in Beta stage.

    Is there any way to check the driver installation size manually?

    The thing is that the actual size is just around 50 MB. Download size was 23 MB.
