Okay i understand. I will keep it uninstalled. Thanks.its mainly used for raid, some people install it to speed up ssd and its used for optane.
If you don't use any of those, uninstall it.
Yes, sorry, use windows update as Microsoft have Nvidia drivers, just not new ones.
As for the DDU instructions, the videos and tutorials advise to download the latest NVIDIA drivers before beginning the process, i ignore this right? I uninstall using DDU then when it comes time to install drivers, go to Windows update and let it find the graphics drivers there?
Also, on the DDU website it states, "You MUST disconnect your internet or completely block Windows Update when running DDU until you have re-installed your new drivers." I also ignore this too considering ill be needing the Windows update to find my drivers?
