Solved!

Driver Files

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion CS30006tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I reinstalled the operating system. But whenever I install the drivers, it extracts its files in the following path. (C: SWSetup). After installation, can I delete the files in that folder? or Should I keep them?

Hi:

 

Yes, you can delete the files in the SWSetup folder.

 

If you never deleted the SWSetup folder, you can copy it to a portable hard drive and then delete the whole folder.

 

The original SWSetup folder contains most of the driver and software installation files that originally came with your notebook, so it is a good thing to keep it but it doesn't necessarily have to be on the hard drive.
